Founding of Bravofly[edit]

The Bravofly Rumbo Group was founded in 2006, but traces its roots back to 2004, when Fabio Cannavale[2] and Marco Corradino launched Volagratis, a search engine for low cost flights in the Italian market. In 2006, the headquarters were moved to Chiasso and the Group began its international expansion by introducing localized websites in Spain, France, Germany and the United Kingdom under the Bravofly brand. It acquired the Spanish OTA, Rumbo, in November 2012. At the end of 2013 the Bravofly Rumbo Group announced the acquisition of Jetcost, a French travel meta-search site, entering a new market segment. British brand lastminute.com was acquired in March 2015.

On 15 April 2014 the Bravofly Rumbo Group appeared on the SIX Swiss Exchange in Zurich.[3]
