The Colombian airline Avianca once again takes to the skies of the country from this next Tuesday, September 1, within the framework of the national air reactivation.
The return of operations will be in two phases: from September 1 and from September 7 of the same month.
One of the confirmed routes for next Tuesday September 1 is Barranquilla – Bogotá on a frequency that has yet to be defined.
Montería, San Andrés and Cartagena are the other capitals of the Caribbean region that will be connected by air with Bogotá in the first phase of Avianca’s operations. So will Bucaramanga, Cali, Cúcuta, Medellín and Pereira.
Santa Marta, for its part, will do so on September 7. In this second phase, Pasto and Villavicencia will be added, in addition to the Cali – Medellín and Cartagena – Medellín connections.
The initial fleet for the return of operations includes 20 aircraft, the Airbus 320 serving the trunk routes and the ATR72 for regional operation. During these months, the entire fleet underwent preventive maintenance checks to protect its general condition and ensure its availability.
On the other hand, the company hopes that the favorable concept on the viability of international flights, recently issued by the Ministry of Health, “will allow the rapid opening of the market to other countries that are high-impact destinations for Colombia and that they will quickly be promote the admission of Colombian nationals to these destinations “.
“Our commitment is to connect Colombia and that is why the restart of the air operation is a step forward in the economic reactivation of the country. When Avianca flies, not only its customers fly, but also travel agencies, hotels, restaurants, tour operators and merchants in general. We hope to contribute from our operation so that the entire tourism value chain benefits from this start ”, indicated Anko van der Werff, president and CEO of Avianca.
