And horrible managed... Flights sold as LEVEL, booking via VUELING, ticket issued under IBERIA-code, operated by openskies - and nobody felt responsible! Worst to come, flights sold in the beginning from VIE on a webpage in Spanish and French. And flights are still sold under the brand Anisec Luftfahrt, despite name change to Level Europe...

The company Level Europe/Anisec is exclusively a short haul operation with bases at Amsterdam and Vienna. This is the company that has closed.
Long haul operations branded as Level are flown out of Barcelona by Iberia, and out of Paris by Openskies (formerly BA Openskies). These are unaffected by what has happened to Level Europe.
