“We have set out to have 200 point-to-point routes in operation by 2025 and we will continue to lead the market in Colombia, which is our home. To meet this goal, we are making a big bet in Medellin with the inauguration of routes to Cancun, Punta Cana and San Andres this year, as well as the opening of new routes to Bucaramanga, Mexico City, San Jose, Quito, Guayaquil, Aruba and Orlando by 2022. We continue to work to connect our travelers with the world with more competitive prices, and more flexible and tailored products for everyone”, Ana María Copete, Director of Sales Colombia for Avianca.

With the inauguration of Medellin-San Andres as one of the 11 new routes that will take off during the month of December, Avianca will add to its operation more than 100 weekly flights and more than 13,000 seats per week.
