About The Airline
Orbest is a Portuguese airline headquartered in Lisbon and based at Lisbon Airport, that operates scheduled and charter flights in short and long haul operations, mainly out of Portugal on behalf of tour operators but also out of Spain on behalf of its sister company Evelop Airlines.
The company was set up in 2007 by the Orizonia Group. Orbest started operations with a single Airbus A330-200, registration CS-TRA. This aircraft remained with the airline until 2010, when the Orizonia Group announced an upgrade to a new and larger Airbus A330-300.
Following the collapse of the Orizonia Corporation, Orbest was purchased by the Barceló Group. The group also created a new airline under the name Evelop Airlines for operations in Spain, which received airplanes from both Orbest and the former Orbest Orizonia Airlines, all aircraft owned by Orbest are now also operated by Evelop.
