The Colombian carrier Avianca has announced seven new routes, which will connect four cities with destinations in the United States, Brazil, and Chile. These routes will increase Avianca’s point-to-point connectivity in the Americas, allowing the carrier to offer 6,000 additional seats and 40 new flights between December 2022 and January 2023.

Increasing point-to-point connectivity

With the goal of increasing its point-to-point connectivity, Avianca has announced it has begun selling tickets for seven new routes connecting the Colombian cities of Pereira, Bucaramanga, Santa Marta, and Cartagena with destinations in the United States, Brazil, and Chile.

Specifically, Avianca will launch flights from Pereira, Bucaramanga, and Santa Marta to Miami International Airport (MIA); from Pereira to New York JFK Airport (JFK); and to Cartagena to São Paulo (GRU, Brazil) and Santiago de Chile (SCL, Chile). These routes will be launched between December 8 and January 11. The airline will operate its Airbus A320 fleet, with a capacity for 150 passengers, to operate these new flights. Let’s not forget that earlier this year, Avianca temporarily suspended six routes from Colombia to the United States. The airline was accused that it halted these routes because they are also operated by its likely to be future partner, Viva Colombia.

Avianca expects to operate around 130 routes this winter season. The Bogota-based airline will serve more than 4,000 weekly flights and offer approximately 700,000 seats in one of the most extensive schedules across the Americas.

New flights

David Alemán, Avianca’s director of sales for Colombia and South America, said,

“With these operations we are thinking of our customers so that they can travel directly, while at the same time making rapid progress in the implementation of point-to-point routes that will allow us to have an even more efficient operation. In addition, considering destinations such as Miami and New York or São Paulo and Santiago de Chile is not only strengthening Avianca’s presence in cities that we have historically flown to but also connecting them with new destinations with great potential. In this way, we are encouraging more and more Colombians to travel by air inside and outside Colombia and more tourists from different countries to visit us.”
