International Push

EGO finally announced a 2021 launch network in January including not only CTA, PMF, SUF, and FRL but Bari (BRI), Rome (FCO), and Firenze (FLR) as well.

The airline also has international plans, eying May 28 as a launch date for flights to Ibiza (IBZ) and Mykonos (JMK).

While the carrier has been operating charter flights since December 1, 2020 it will be interesting to see how E3 will fare in the scheduled passenger market.
