Inter European Airways (company number 02012379) commenced operation in May 1987. Initial plans had indicated the use of two Boeing 737-300 aircraft, but in place of these a single 737-200 leased from GPA was used.
After operating during the Summer 1987 season, the aircraft was returned to GPA at the end of October and operations ceased for the winter.
Two new Boeing 737-300 series aircraft were however delivered in early 1988 - these too being leased from GPA.
Over the subsequent years, the IEA fleet grew to a total of 12 aircraft, though the maximum operated at any time was 8 aircraft during 1992 & 1993.
Other aircraft operated included the Boeing 737-400, Boeing 757-200 and Airbus A320-200.
Operations under the IEA name continued to the end of October 1993.
The Inter European Airways fleet was then either disposed of (Boeing 737-300/400 aircraft) or merged into the Airtours International fleet and repainted into their livery.
