History

Our humble history dates back to 2012 when flyeuro Virtual Airlines became existent in development stages.

It all began somewhere in 2012 when two aviation enthuasists planned to open their own virtual airline, having in mind a network which would be wide in the future, but limited and balanced at the beginning. The idea was to create a no-frills, low-cost virtual airline that had absolute simplicity in it's mind for members. Legal battles with real airlines was something we were keen to avoid and the process of choosing an original new name began. After intense months of debating upon the name, fleet and operation strategy, flyeuro.com was born. We looked for a name that is both modern and catchy, as well as simple and smart that works with the low-cost model.
