From September, the pilot plan will start working to re-establish international flights in Colombia. This was stated by President Ivan Duque this Sunday during a question and answer session through Facebook Live.

“We also know that it is important, but obviously we are watching the routes and we are also looking at some requirements, but the answer is: in September we will have pilot plan for international flights,” said the president.

“We are going to begin to restore those international flights. Obviously, they will not be yet with the dynamism, to the full, as we had before the pandemic. We are already identifying those routes. We have already had requests from Barranquilla, from Cartagena, from Medellín; Pereira is also in this process,” he said.

On his part, the Deputy Minister of Political Relations of the Ministry of the Interior, Daniel Palacios, affirmed that all airports in the country will be open as of September 1st.

“We are developing the biosecurity protocols for international flights where, at least, there will have to be a negative test (of covid-19) by the traveler entering the national territory,” said the official.

“The routes to which we will have connectivity are being established in this plan that is being led by the Ministry of Transport with the Civil Aeronautics,” he remarked.
