Several airlines have started new flights so far this November, with the aim of connecting various regions of Colombia and abroad.
Weekend Avianca activates the operation of the Bogota-Chicago route, becoming the first airline to directly connect two cities. "This is the eighth destination in the United States that the airline has to offer to travelers from Bogotá," said a statement.
AV82 flights take off from El Dorado International Airport on Saturday at 12:35 and make Avianca the only airline that connects directly to Bogotá with the city of Chicago, in the United States.
On a weekly basis, four frequencies will be operated on Airbus A319 aircraft (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday), with capacities for 120 passengers, 12 in business class and 108 in economy. The new route will operate from Terminal A from O & # 39; Hare International Airport in Chicago.
This new flight will allow Chicago passengers to connect with the extensive network of Latin American cities offered from Bogotá, such as: Quito and Guayaquil (Ecuador), Lima (Peru), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), Buenos Aires (Argentina) and Santiago de Chile and increase the possibility of reaching Colombian destinations such as Cali, Medellin, Barranquilla, Pereira and Cartagena, among others. In the same way, passengers coming from the cities mentioned will be able to access Chicago from Bogotá.
Also on Saturday, Aeromexico began operating the Rionegro-Cancún seasonal route, with two weekly frequencies (Saturday and Sunday).
These flights are served on Embraer aircraft for 190 passengers, and will be available until April 28, 2019.
In his Twitter account, the spokesman for Rionegro airport José María Córdova @ AeropuertoMDE shows that: "With Cancún, there are eleven direct international routes that connect us to the world. That's how we went on our first flight today! @Aeromexico."
On November 13, Viva Air inaugurated Medellin-Lima flights, with 3 weekly flights departing on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, and with which they expected to transport more than 40,000 customers in the first year of operation.
From November 9, the airline Spirit launched a new direct route Orlando-Medellín – Orlando, from José María Córdova International Airport from Rionegro, thus providing better service for all passengers and preventing those using this route from having stops at other airports .
Finally, on Friday, November 2, the direct route Easyfly Quibdó (Airplan Airport Airport) and Cali began operating.
