Neos Started To Fly Yesterday!

Thu Mar 14, 2002 10:03 pm

After a short inaugural ceremony to present the new airline to the press, yesterday Neos started to fly.

Neos is a new Italian charter carrier owned 51% by Fiat Group and 49% by the German charter Hapag Lloyd.
Neos will fly mainly for the tour operator Alpitour-Francorosso that's owned 90% by Fiat Group and 10% by Preassug.
That why the cooperation with Hapag Lloyd.

Neos started yesterday with a B737/800 (I-NEOS) in full TUI colours.
The only difference with Hapag Lloyd and Britannia livery are the name NEOS written in red and the Italian registration numbers.
(At the moment there isn't a picture of Neos in A.net database, so I put a HF picture)

A second B738 will join the fleet in May and a third is scheduled to arrive in October.
The plane has an all economy layout with 184 seats.
Neos is based in Milan Malpensa airport.
They operate from terminal 2.
