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.
Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous!

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).

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...
