Established in July 2019, EGO Airways was an Italian airline, operating regional flights within Italy. The airline operated from its base at Milan Malpensa Airport.
The airline planned to operate with a fleet of Embraer E190/195 aircraft, which had a capacity of around 100 passengers. It's likely that the airline would have only looked to serve short-haul niche markets in the future.
Update: After obtaining its air operator's certificate (AOC) by the Italian CAA, the carrier operated its first commercial flight in December 2020, with a charter flight between Naples and Amsterdam. Since then, EGO Airways had been operating private charter flights. However, in the months after, the carrier hoped to begin regular scheduled operations in the summer season 2021.
As well as ticketing all major carriers around the world, Alternative Airlines specialises in making it easy to find and book flights on smaller regional routes.

Although the airline initially served the above domestic destinations, in the long-term it also hoped to provide scheduled passenger flights to the following international destinations (already available to book via private charter flights):
Every passenger received one piece of free 9kg hand luggage with a maximum dimension of 55cm x 35cm x 25cm. This baggage allowance applied to all fare classes including Just Go, Just Go Plus and Just Go Lounge.
Prohibited items were not allowed onboard including any fluid exceeding 100ml. These items had to be stored in checked baggage. Valuable items should've been stored with the passengers at all times.
Economy Class: Passengers with 'Just Go' tickets were not entitled to any free checked baggage. 'Just Go Plus' passengers received one piece of 15kg checked baggage, whereas 'Just Go Lounge' passengers would receive a total of 20kg baggage.
Business Class: Passengers with 'Private' tickets were not entitled to any free checked baggage. 'Private Plus' passengers received one piece of 15kg checked baggage, whereas 'Private Flexy' passengers would receive a total of 20kg baggage.
Any baggage exceeding 32kg wouldn't be accepted by the airline due to international health and safety regulations. Excess baggage could be purchased when booking with Alternative Airlines, our guide on how to add baggage to your booking will demonstrate.
Online check-in was available from 24 hours before to 2.5 hours before the scheduled departure time. All passengers were advised to check in online unless they were passengers with reduced mobility, minors travelling alone, groups of more than nine people or travelling with any special luggage. These passengers must have checked in at the airport.
Once online check-in was completed, passengers would get their boarding passes and could report directly to airport security if there was no checked baggage to drop off.
Airport check-in counters opened between two hours to 35 minutes before domestic flights and 45 minutes before scheduled departure time for European flights. Passengers shouldn't check-in later than the airline check-in deadline or the airline reserved the right to refuse check-in.
A form of identification upon check-in was required in order to assist any passengers.
There were two flight classes with the airline: JUST GO and PRIVATE.
The cabin class was based on the position of the seat in the cabin and reflected different levels of personal space and comfort. All passengers could relax in premium seating, with adjustable lighting and air conditioning.
A frequent flyer programme was not available for passengers, the airline hadn't said if they would launch one.
EGO Airways wasn't part of any airline alliances.
The airline was planning to operate a fleet of Embraer E190/195 aircraft. It's a single-aisle aircraft suitable for short-haul operations with a seating capacity of around 100 passengers.
