Neos S.p.A. is an Italian leisure airline with its headquarters in Somma Lombardo[4] and main base at Milan-Malpensa Airport.[5]


Neos was established on 22 June 2001, as a joint venture between two tourism companies, the Italian Alpitour S.p.A. and the German TUI Group. Revenue flights were launched on 8 March 2002. In January 2004, Alpitour bought all of TUI Group's shares, making Neos a fully owned subsidiary of Alpitour no longer affiliated with TUI.[6][7]

For many years Neos has been working with Costa Cruises to transport passengers from Italy to Dubai, the Caribbean and northern Europe at Costa's ships' departure and arrival points.

In January 2011, Neos fleet was increased in size to six aircraft. In 2014, Neos ordered three Boeing 787-8s.[8] These orders were later converted into three larger 787-9s. Neos became the first Italian operator of the Boeing 787 when its first 787-9 entered service on 25 December 2017.[9]


Neos operates flights to destinations in southern Europe, Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and Mexico.


As of September 2019, the Neos fleet consists of the following aircraft:[10]
