"It is important to continue with the implementation of new routes and destinations to increase the country's competitiveness, prices for travelers and the diversification of products and services," said Paula Cortés Calle, executive president of ANATO


Air connectivity is undoubtedly a key element in the tourism production chain. And for this reason, the commitment of the National Government in the implementation of new national routes will be key for the resurgence of some regions and the economic recovery of Colombia.

"It is important to continue with the implementation of new routes and destinations to increase the country's competitiveness, prices for travelers and the diversification of products and services," said Paula Cortés Calle, executive president of ANATO. 

Within these destinations are Tolú and La Macarena. The first of them, registered in 2019 the arrival of 2,397 passengers on domestic flights, of which 78% did so on regular flights. However, in 2021 it obtained higher traffic (8,372), which means that Colombians are interested in visiting the destination, so a route from Bogotá is essential.

In relation to La Macarena, which will begin to connect with Medellín, in 2019 it registered the arrival of 17,772 passengers on domestic flights and although it has been a highly visited destination, only 15% of its visitors do so through regular flights, for what this strategy would open the opportunities so that more travelers are encouraged to know it.

In the case of Providencia, which after Hurricane Iota was forced to close its connection with San Andrés, a total of 34,701 arrived in 2019, and 48% of them did so on regular flights, so the reestablishment of route, starting in June, will become a hope for the destination, its recovery and sustainability. 

"This action speaks very well of the confidence in the sector and the country, which will boost tourism and take it back to the growth paths that it had been reporting before the pandemic," concluded the union leader.
