National market in Colombia, strengthened
For the Colombian domestic market, the airline has made a commitment to offer more connectivity options on the routes with the highest demand on flights from Bogotá to cities such as Medellín, Cali, Bucaramanga, Cartagena, Pereira and Santa Marta.
This strengthening in the operation and increase of seats in the market began from the opening of flights, however, the airline prepared for the high season at the end of the year, and for the month of December a strengthening is reflected in routes such as:
Cali and Medellín from Bogotá: each operates with 77 frequencies a week.

“Since the reactivation of domestic and international flights in the country, the airline has made sure to activate more and more routes and more frequencies that meet current passenger demand, so that we can generate profitable and sustainable growth in the market. Without a doubt, this strengthening of operations is good news for the connectivity of the country, where we have been present for 100 years, ”said Julián Laverde, Vice President of Network Operations at Avianca Holdings.
The airline will continue working to offer a smooth operation, however, it is important to note that the restart of the air operation throughout the country is being gradual and in turn the number of flights approved by the authorities is limited. Therefore, the availability of chairs depends on the authorized capacity.
Passengers with confirmed tickets are recommended to self-manage their trip on the "MY TRIPS" section website and on the other service channels where they can find out the frequencies and existing availability.
