EasyFly (Colombia) (VE, Bogotá) is planning to create a regional connection hub in Medellin in Antioquia State across its operations at Medellín Olaya Herrera and Medellín José Maria Córdova, with the introduction of new services and enhanced frequencies on existing flights, according to a report in Eje 21.

The regional airline's operation at Olaya Herrera is already its second-largest base, commanding 14% of EasyFly's weekly capacity, behind only its operation at Bogotá (20% share of seats), according to the ch-aviation capacities module. In April, the carrier will increase frequencies on five of its 11 services from Olaya Herrera, namely on its sectors to Bucaramanga, Pereira, Armenia, Ibagué, and Monteria. Also, the airline will introduce a new service on the 194-nautical-mile (359-kilometre) sector to Mompos on April 4.

Located just 11 nautical miles (20 kilometres) away, EasyFly will also expand its operation from the city's main international gateway at José Maria Córdova airport in 2020, under a three-phase plan. The airport is presently the airline's eighth most important operation, but it will increase in importance throughout 2020.

Earlier this year the regional carrier enhanced it frequencies on its services to Cali and introduced a new 5x weekly airport pair to Bucaramanga. On March 13 the airline introduced services to Apartadó, with a 6x weekly operation to Monteria launching on April 20.

In the second phase of its development, EasyFly will add connections to Ibagué and Armenia - the first time that direct flights have been operated from José Maria Córdova to both cities. The last stage of the carrier's plan will see new routes launched to Cartagena de Indias, Valledupar, Pasto, and Neiva. For the latter three cities, these services represent the first time they have been directly connected by air to Medellín.

The regional carrier operates a fleet of 22 aircraft, comprising of six ATR42-500s, eleven ATR42-600s and five ATR72-600s.
