Level was marketed initially as a low-cost, long-haul carrier, and began transatlantic services from Barcelona–El Prat Airport in June 2017. In July 2018, Level expanded with long-haul services from Paris Orly Airport which eventually took over the operation of IAG affiliate OpenSkies, and began its first short-haul services from Vienna International Airport.
Level was established by IAG in response to increased competition in the low-cost long-haul market, including that of Norwegian Long Haul. On 15 March 2017, IAG CEO Willie Walsh announced the new brand, together with four destinations from Barcelona–El Prat Airport beginning in June 2017. These were Oakland, Los Angeles, Buenos Aires and Punta Cana. A one-year contract was in place for Iberia to operate Level flights under its IB flight code and provide the necessary personnel, which has since been extended.
Willie Walsh, CEO of IAG, stated the corporation due to take over operation of the brand sold 52,000 seats within two days of being established, and over 147,000 after little more than 1.5 months, far exceeding IAG's expectations. Rome, Paris and Milan were mentioned as possible locations for future expansion of the airline in Europe, together with additional routes out of Barcelona.
In line with the expressed intent to continue with future expansion by adding routes from other European cities, on 28 November 2017, Level announced flights from Paris Orly Airport to Montreal and Point-à-Pitre and flights from Barcelona to Boston to begin from July 2018, and flights from Paris Orly to Fort-de-France and Newark to begin from September 2018. Flights from Paris Orly were to be operated under the air operator's certificate (AOC) and crew of OpenSkies, another airline owned by IAG. After the OpenSkies brand was retired on 2 September 2018, its operations were absorbed into the Level brand.
On 29 June 2018, IAG announced the launch of a new low-cost Austrian subsidiary, Anisec Luftfahrt, to operate flights from Vienna International Airport, branded as Level, starting from 17 July 2018. The new subsidiary bears its own Austrian AOC and bases four Airbus A321 aircraft previously used by Air Berlin and Niki in Vienna, from which it planned to serve 14 European destinations on behalf of Level by the end of August 2018. However, by December 2018 Level announced cuts to its Vienna route network, with routes being reduced in frequency or cancelled altogether, due to business figures being below expectations.
