Vienna Airport to name street after late F1 great Niki Lauda

Officials said on Tuesday that a street at Vienna Airport would be named after the late Austrian Formula One great Niki Lauda.

The three-time Formula One world champion was also a keen pilot and regularly flew from the airport in his private jet.

The street, which leads to the VIP terminal, is to be called Nika Lauda Allee (Niki Lauda Avenue).

Lauda’s passion for aviation saw him found an airline, Lauda Air, upon his retirement from Formula One in 1985.

Vienna Airport was closely linked to Lauda’s life whether as enthusiastic pilot or as aviation entrepreneur.

The former non-executive chairman of the Mercedes Formula One team died on May 20 aged 70, having failed to recover from an emergency lung transplant.

A near-fatal racing accident in 1976 had left him with a scarred face and permanent health problems.
