UEP!Fly is a new airline, operating inter-island scheduled passenger flights between Spain’s Balearic Islands. The airline currently operates flights between three destinations: Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza. In the future, the airline hopes to also operate flights to Iberian Peninsula.
UEP!Fly was founded by Swiftair and Salvador Moreno, a former Spanish Harrier fighter pilot. The airline is on a mission to continue to expand and develop its route network, to provide greater connectivity between the islands. The airline uses aerospatiale ATR-72 turboprop aircraft, which are operated by its parent company, Swiftair.
When the new airline was originally announced it was branded as Uep Airways (UEP), before re-branding to 'UEP!Fly' in 2021.
The launch of UEP will help improve connectivity between Spain’s popular Balearic islands, a popular archipelago of islands that draw thousands of tourists each year. The four largest islands are Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza, and Formentera, famed for their sunny resorts, culture and nightlife. Iberia's subsidiaries, Air Nostrum and Iberia Regional, are competitor airlines which also operates scheduled passenger flights between the islands.
