The company announced that it will operate more than 6,500 flights on its 128 routes

More than 850,000 travelers will fly on the more than 6,500 flights that Avianca will operate during the Easter season for its customers to connect on 128 routes with more than 65 destinations in America and Europe. 

In order to have a smooth operation and with the aim that travelers receive timely and quality service, it will be essential to continue working together between authorities, airlines and concessionaires, mainly on the following fronts: 

  • Processes of leaving and entering Colombia: The coordinated work between Migration Colombia, the Civil Aeronautics and the airlines will continue to be essential to achieve a successful season. The 30% increase in immigration officials announced for El Dorado, as well as the arrival of travelers 3 hours in advance at the migration modules are factors that will facilitate and speed up the operation. 
  • Operational and weather challenges in El Dorado: Having reliable weather forecasts will allow proper planning of the operation and anticipation of more complex weather conditions. Likewise, enabling support systems such as the El Dorado ILS in its category III and other operational alternatives will favor impact management in the event of possible capacity reductions due to bad weather conditions or low visibility.  
  • Control and management of disruptive passengers: Bearing in mind that cases of disruptive passengers have doubled in the last 4 years, co-responsibility between travellers, authorities, airlines and airport operators will be essential in order to avoid affecting operations and others clients for misbehavior. 
In addition, given the high influx of people at the different airports, Avianca recommends its customers:  
  1. Arrive at the airport 3 hours in advance for domestic and international flights.  
  2. Check with the authorities of your country of destination about the entry requirements, as well as having your vaccination card and/or PCR test on hand when entering Colombia if required.
  3. Fill out the Check Mig  form in advance  , when leaving or entering Colombia.
  4. Make use of the automatic Bio Mig machines to carry out migratory processes in just 20 seconds. If they are not registered in Bio Mig, travelers can ask an Immigration official to register for future trips.
  5. For safety reasons, transport items such as cell phones, laptops, tablets, cameras, portable external chargers (Power Banks) and any object containing lithium batteries in hand luggage. 
“Holy Week is one of the high seasons where more clients want to fly and for this reason, the co-responsibility of all is essential: airlines complying with regulations and with their itineraries; aeronautical and immigration authorities with everything ready so that each process is agile; and also of the clients consulting the travel requirements on time, comparing in advance and arriving at the airports on time. In this way we can achieve a  successful season," said Frederico Pedreira, Avianca's Chief Operating Officer.
