Easyfly hitting the heights

Colombian airline Easyfly, which started up three months ago, has gone from mobilising 3,500 passengers in November 2007 to 10,000 last month (January 2008). This sharp rise has led the firm to acquiring five more planes for US$10mil from British Aerospace, with which it will try to open up ten new routes.

Easyfly has already asked the entity Aerocivil for permission to build a new operational centre at the Enrique Olaya Herrera airport in Medellin. The company president, Alfonso Avila likes to call Easyfly a high-efficiency rather than a low-cost airline. It currently runs routes to Barrancabermeja, Armenia, Arauca, Ibague, Neiva, Yopal and Cartago, having momentarily suspended flights to Villavicencio.
