Waynabox is a startup founded in 2015 by 3 engineer friends. Maria Carbonell, Head of Marketing and Communication at the company, explains: “it all began when they went interrailing together after graduating from university, and their eagerness to travel and see the world gave them the idea to set up their own business once they returned to Spain. The initial idea was to create something similar to interrail, but using planes instead of trains. But Waynabox is bigger than that now."
