Austrian airline Laudamotion is to launch a new direct service between Edinburgh and Vienna in the autumn.

The airline, which operates as Lauda, will fly between the cities three times a week from 27 October to 26 March.

The service will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays using an Airbus A320.

Laudamotion was founded by Formula 1 racing legend Niki Lauda but became a fully-owned subsidiary of Ryanair in January.
