About Eurofly

Eurofly was a privately owned airline based in Milan, Italy. It was founded in 1992 as Alpi Eagles by an Italian tour operator, quickly establishing itself as a low-cost carrier that would focus on charter flights and holiday destinations around the Mediterranean. By 2004, the airline gained a significant market share in Italy, operating scheduled flights to major European cities alongside its charter and holiday services. In 2005, Eurofly acquired its rival Italian carrier, Compagnia Aerea Italian, which led to the expansion of its fleet and network.

The integration of Compagnia Aerea Italian was challenging - Eurofly ultimately faced rising fuel costs and increased competition from other low-cost carriers. It attempted to diversify its operations, launching long-haul flights to Bangkok and New York, but these routes were unprofitable.

By 2009, Eurofly was struggling financially and was forced to implement cost-cutting measures, including fleet reductions and route cancellations. In January 2010, the airline filed for bankruptcy after failing to secure investment or a merger partner. Its assets were eventually acquired by Meridiana Fly, another Italian carrier, marking the end of Eurofly's operations.
