Avianca has increased its flights by 77% in the last 3 months
In total, the airline's network today consists of 94 routes, of which 70 are offered in the domestic and international markets of Colombia, with the application of strict biosafety protocols
Avianca started the year by strengthening the operation and has increased its routes by 77% and its frequencies by 124% compared to October, throughout its network.
Julián Laverde, Avianca's Vice President of Network Operations, commented: “For several months our efforts have been focused on improving operational processes and thanks to that work, today we can deliver a better service to our customers. In terms of flight departure punctuality, we maintain an indicator above 95% and in compliance with itineraries, 98%.
Avianca customers have a large network of routes that allows them to choose a variety of schedules and point-to-point connections, so our objective this year will be to continue adapting this network to the needs of the new market.
National market in Colombia, with more regional routes
The airline has 36 active national routes with the provision of more than 100 thousand seats. The 6 additional routes that it reactivated since the beginning of the year are flights that connect different regions of the country without stops in Bogotá, which will undoubtedly facilitate the plans of thousands of Colombian passengers. These routes are:
Bucaramanga - Cartagena
Bucaramanga - Santa Marta
Cali - Pasto
Cali - Tumaco
These operations are in addition to the regional routes that the airline already had active, such as: Cali-Cartagena, Cali-Medellín, Cartagena-Medellín, Medellín-Santa Marta, among others.
Thus, in the national market, the company has increased its total frequencies by 118%, currently operating 722 weekly frequencies.
Currently, the airline flies 34 international routes from Colombia, with the provision of 28 thousand seats during January.
It is important to highlight that the activation of the air operation is being gradual and that, 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 other digital service channels, where they will be able to find out the frequencies and existing availability.
