WELCOME ON BOARD
Flying high in less than 10 years
The Spanish airline Albastar was founded in 2009 by Italian and British entrepreneurs with the aim of providing on demand flight services in collaboration with major Spanish, Italian and European Tour Operators.
On 30th July 2010, Albastar obtained its Air Operator Certificate (AOC-E-106) and the Commercial Operations licence to transport passengers and cargo. On the following day, the company’s first aircraft of the fleet, Boeing 737-400 EC-LAV, called “Pino D’Urso”, in honour of the founder of the airline, begins its flying activity.
In 2014 the company establishes its operational base at Milan Malpensa Airport. Over the years and thanks to the collaboration with major Tour Operators specialising in pilgrimages and religious trips, Albastar has successfully established itself as the top European carrier for connections to Lourdes, with flights departing from over 45 European airports, and it is precisely from this destination that the airline began its scheduled air services in 2015.
As members of AIRE, the Airlines International Representation in Europe, Albastar is actively involved in making the sector as efficient as possible.
2019 is an important year for us and for our passengers: we obtained the IOSA certification (International Operational Safety Audit) and we became a member of IATA (International Air Transport Association): this means that we have reached the highest operational and safety standards in the airline industry.
