Avianca has 90 active routes and is performing 300 flights a day

According to La República, Avianca resumed a dozen international flights and now has 90 active routes. The airline is performing 300 flights a day. Its new president, Adrian Neuhauser, told the newspaper that the company intends to exit bankruptcy – the so-called Chapter 11 – in the last quarter of this year. The second-largest airline in Latin America filed for bankruptcy over the COVID-19 pandemic last May.

In this month of June, Avianca has resumed direct flights from Bogotá to Fort Lauderdale, Washington, Los Angeles, San Juan de Puerto Rico, Panama City, La Paz and Santa Cruz de la Sierra; from San Salvador to Panama City, and from Guatemala City to Tegucigalpa. Likewise, in July, it will resume its direct operation from Bogotá to Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro; and San Pedro Sula to Miami. It will also increase its capacity on 26 domestic routes in Colombia to 13%.

At the end of May, Avianca was the first South American airline to announce that it would use the Iata Travel Pass app.
