Avianca Opens Four More Routes, Including Boston-Bogota

Colombian airline Avianca announced the resumption of flights to Boston, Tegucigalpa (Honduras), Manaus (Brazil) and Belo Horizonte (Brazil) almost a year after it ended bankruptcy proceedings.

All four new routes will be added to the network in March this year, the airline announced in a press release, adding that flights will begin at Bogota’s El Dorado Airport.

Avianca flies twice a week to Manaus and four times weekly to Belo Horizonte, each with an Airbus A320 aircraft with a capacity for 180 passengers. Both Brazilian cities were previously operated by the now-defunct Avianca Brasil.

With the addition of new routes, the airline now offers flights to four destinations in Brazil, eleven destinations in the United States and two destinations in Honduras.

Avianca currently operates three daily flights to São Paulo/Guarulhos and one daily flight to Rio de Janeiro/Galeao. In January 2023, it will inaugurate a connection between Cartagena (CTG) and São Paulo.

The addition of routes to Tegucigalpa complements the airliner’s current offering from the Honduran capital to San Salvador (El Salvador) and Guatemala City (Guatemala) with ten and six weekly flights, respectively.

Avianca operates more than 2,000 flights to the United States each month from its bases in Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador and Guatemala. In 2022, it transported more than 2.6 million travelers to the US.

As its finances improve following a boom in the airline industry, Avianca is phasing out older airplanes and adding new ones to its network.

“In 2022 we inaugurated 21 new connections and by 2023 we will open 20 more,” said Manuel Ambriz, Avianca’s chief commercial officer.
