London will again become a destination for Columbian airline Avianca from the start of the summer season 27 March 2022 with daily flights from the capital Bogota.
Currently the airline has one of the largest networks in Latin America with more than 100 routes, around 3,120 flights a week and about 470,000 weekly seats.
Originally established in 1919 Avianca sought Chapter 11 protection in May 2020 (See BTN 18 May 2020) but has continued to fly, albeit with reduced schedules.
“We are pleased to resume direct flights between the United Kingdom and Colombia, offering more and better options to our customers travelling between Europe and Latin America. For our long-haul flights, we will maintain the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet with an executive cabin and an economy cabin," said Catalina Nannig, Avianca's Vice President of Sales and Distribution.
In October Avianca announced the choice of the Boeing 787 as its definitive fleet for long-haul flights.
