Air Europa History

Air Europa is a Spanish airline that was founded in 1986. It is the third-largest airline in Spain and operates both domestic and international flights. Over the years, Air Europa has grown to become one of the leading carriers in Europe, offering a wide range of destinations and services to its passengers.

The airline began its operations with just a few aircraft and a handful of routes. However, it quickly expanded its fleet and route network to meet the growing demand for air travel in Spain and beyond. Air Europa's commitment to providing high-quality service and competitive fares has helped it to establish a strong presence in the aviation industry.

One of the key milestones in Air Europa's history was its acquisition by the Globalia Group in 1991. This strategic move allowed the airline to benefit from the group's expertise and resources, enabling it to further expand its operations and improve its services. Under Globalia's ownership, Air Europa continued to grow and modernize its fleet, ensuring that it remained at the forefront of the industry.
