Avianca to London

Last Friday (4 July) Colombian airline Avianca became the first carrier to open an entirely new route into the re-established Heathrow T2 with a four times weekly London – Bogotá service.  Now 90 years old Avianca withdrew its UK services back in October 2001.  It has been a member of Star Alliance since 2012.

The flight will operate on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from Eldorado International Airport in Bogotá and on Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from Heathrow.  In this way Avianca offers new options to travellers from Latin America interested in flying to destinations in northern Europe.  It also expands the options for British travellers who want to fly to Bogotá and to seamlessly connect, via Avianca, to the other capitals throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.

With the launch of this route Avianca advances in its consolidation process as the leading airline in the Colombia – Europe market with the four weekly flights to London being added to the current offering of 23 Colombia – Spain services.

Heathrow – Bogotá has a flight time of around 11hrs 30mins with a two-class Airbus A330.  www.avianca.com
