Sparfell honours Lauda legacy with Luftfahrt transition
Acquired by Sparfell in 2019, LaudaMotion Executive (now Sparfell Luftfahrt) was previously owned by the late Niki Lauda, who was known for his determination to provide services of the highest quality and safety.
Bernhard Wipfler is fully embracing the transition.

Sparfell Aviation Group is integrating Austrian AOC operator LaudaMotion Executive, which will now be known as Sparfell Luftfahrt. Acquired by Sparfell in 2019, the subsidiary was previously owned by the late Niki Lauda, who was known for his determination to provide services of the highest quality and safety, as well as for his great passion for aviation. Sparfell Luftfahrt provides exclusive charter flights, as well as aircraft management services.

Bernhard Wipfler, MD of Sparfell Luftfahrt, says: “Having joined Sparfell Aviation Group in June 2019, it is a real pleasure to be part of an aviation group sharing our company values and embracing Niki Lauda’s spirit of the utmost safety for our customers. The teams continue to honour our promise to our customers of providing the best service.”

Sparfell currently holds AOCs in Austria (IS-BAO certified by IBAC), France and San Marino. The aviation group provides a global solution for every need by offering a wide selection of services under one roof, from charter, aircraft management and design to trading. Asked about the business name change, Sparfell CEO Edward Queffelec shared that regrouping all subsidiaries under the Sparfell umbrella allows the company to display a consistent image and uphold high standards across the board.

Sparfell holds Austrian AOCs for LaudaMotion Executive (now Sparfell Luftfahrt) and Speedwings, and a French AOC for Speedwings, which was acquired by Sparfell in November 2020. San Marino operations were established at the end of last year.
