Avianca is preparing to return to Venezuela from Bogota, once the respective authorization is received, and is analyzing the possibility of doing so from other geographical points in Latin America.

According to Portafolio, airline authorities confirmed their interest in the Venezuelan market, given, among other factors, the migratory process of the last 15 years, where the presence of Venezuelans in several countries of the region could represent a high flow of family tourism, beyond nature or business tourism.

“It is a natural connection for Avianca, but it is also a natural connection for any airline today because of the significant diaspora of Venezuelan citizens in Latin America, which generates a lot of travel demand (…) We welcome the efforts of the two governments,” said Adrian Neuhauser, CEO of Avianca Group.

Meanwhile, Gabriel Oliva, executive vice president of Avianca Cargo, reiterated the airline’s commitment to this market both in the airfreight and cargo areas. “We have a fleet to travel there. There are (cargo) traffics with which we can contribute.”
