Globalia's main companies are grouped into 6 large business areas:
1. AIR DIVISION
Air Europa was the first private airline to establish regular flights, first domestic and then international, breaking the monopoly held by Iberia until that time in Spain.
2. RETAIL DIVISION
It is made up of the network of Halcón Viajes and Viajes Ecuador travel agencies. The two brands also operate through their own web portals.
3. WHOLESALE DIVISION
Travelplan has become the leading tour operator in the Spanish market, both in terms of number of destinations and passengers. While its scheduling is based on Air Europa's regular and charter flight network, it encompasses all types of products and destinations. Scheduled trips on Spanish and European railway lines are managed through Iberrail, the tour operator specialising in high-speed trains. In March 2003, Travelplan took over Iberotours with its Touring Club brand name. In 2007, it acquired 50% of MK Tour, a North American operator based in Miami specialising in travel packages to the Dominican Republic.
4. HOTEL DIVISION
Be Live Hotels is the group's hotel brand. It has grown rapidly over the past four years and now has a total of 25 hotels in its portfolio, both under management and in rental and property.
5. HANDLING DIVISION
Groundforce is the company in charge of providing ground service to aircraft, loading and unloading baggage and handling check-in. It is the second largest handling operator in Spain by business volume.
