FRANKFURT (Reuters) – The sale of the bankrupt company Niki to the former world champion Formula One Niki Lauda, who created it, has been finalized, said Wednesday Lucas Flöther, the administrator of the addition, austrian subsidiary of Air Berlin.
The assets of Niki Luftfahrt GmbH were transferred to Laudamotion, he said.
In January, the directors of Niki had announced that Niki Lauda was to take over the airline in its name.
Niki has filed for bankruptcy in Berlin in December after the abandonment by Lufthansa (DE:LHAG) of its proposed takeover of the austrian airline, Air Berlin, itself in bankruptcy.
