Easyfly backing its own efficiency

Easyfly, the new Colombian low-cost airline, has begun operations with flights out of Medellin and Bogota at very low prices (Easyfly is actually operating four tariffs: promotional, economical, medium and high but flyers can secure 80% reductions compared to rival airlines).

Easyfly is buying fuel in bulk and storing it to secure price advantages and offering only minimum or basic in-flight services. Its start-up routes are Bogota to Barrancabermeja, Armenia, Arauca, Ibague, Neiva, Yopal and Cartago and from Medellin to Armenia and Bogota. Meanwhile, Spirit Airlines and Jetblue have announced promotional tariffs of less than US$10 for flights from the US to Colombia.
