The airline operates from its main hub 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.[citation needed]

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 four larger 787-9s for then to be added in 2020 with another 2 taken up from Norwegian Air International. Neos became the first Italian operator of the Boeing 787 when its first 787-9 entered service on 25 December 2017.[9]

Neos Air also received later on 30 March 2021 its first 2 Boeing 737 MAX 8 for then to later receive another 2 on 8 June 2021 adding the tally to 4 737 MAX 8 to the fleet.[10]
