Hey guys,

Today reading the aviazionecivile.it forum I found this interesting new saying that one of the administrators of the airline declared that Eurofly won't be a charter anymore soon, as they will become an airline especialized in destinations over the Mediterranean.

Moreover, the info says that there could be a potential 'merger' or integration as they say between Meridiana, especialized in the domestic sector, and Eurofly, more into the long-range sector.

What do you guys think? Could we see a new airline soon?

This can be pretty interesting, as I have heard that Meridiana has been doing pretty well on their business, and Eurofly hasn't been bad at all.

Cheers.

Quoting 797 (Thread starter):

As far as I know they have never made any profit.

The CJ route MXP-JFK was a financial mess and they lost huge amounts. The other longhaul routes are doing better. However apart of maybe Kenya they produce losses as well.

The merger with Livingston did not take place....I don't know why. Maybe a someone from Italy can tell us.

I wonder what is their strategy for the future. But the information you posted could also mean that they sill continue those "charter" flights turning them into scheduled services.

I wonder if they'll ever take the A350s that they have on order, they don't sound like that they could still be around in 7 or 8 years when the XWB will be delivered?

With IG (Meridiana) about to be part of oneworld (or so I remember reading somewhere), I think that since GJ are to be controlled by IG, it will become more of an IG problem than anything else. I think IG are well-placed are fixing the stuff that is not going well at GJ (eurofly).

Honestly, I don't have this impression. I even think that there is more going wrong there than a year ago.

AFAIK Eurofly is really making profits just on long haul charters to the likes of Maldives and stuff.
They don't even manage to turn a profit out of short haul charter ops. which traditionally generate revenues.
That's not enough for an airline to survive, so they are trying to find new markets, like scheduled flights.
In that way, I think they will be taken over by Meridiana, who has long-established scheduled routes in Italy and btw need to replace their old Mad Dogs fleet; Eurofly A320s come to mind for a start...
Time will tell...



Any ideas for a signature?

That's what I've heard too. I never thought they were having negative results on their medium haul network.

That would be nice, but would it bother in the Meridiana performance?
