The Austrian low-cost air company Flyniki announced the launch of a second flight between Sofia and Vienna during the weekdays.

FlyNiki, whose owner is former Formula 1 world champion Niki Lauda, explained it will operate morning and evening flights during the week, with one connection per day on Saturdays and Sundays.

Ticket prices to Vienna start from EUR 69.11 for a return ticket, including taxes.

Flyniki started flying to Sofia in February. From Vienna passengers may switch to other destinations – including Munich, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Paris and Z?rich - benefiting from the network of FlyNiki and its partner Air Berlin.

FlyNiki is an airline owned and run by Niki Lauda. After being ousted from Lauda Air by boardroom politics in November 2000, in late 2003 Niki Lauda bought some planes from a German airline that had gone bankrupt and started FlyNiki.

It operates as a budget airline mainly from Germany and Austria.
