“Colombia has become a must-see destination for tourism and business in the wake of a peace agreement that ended a 52-year armed conflict. This new flight reflects on the new Colombian reality, full of opportunities to attract more travelers from the US that are looking for cultural, natural and MICE experiences”, explains Felipe Jaramillo, president of ProColombia.
Efficient connections and more benefits for travelers
The schedule on which the Boston – Bogota route will operate expands connection possibilities – through the Bogota hub – with destinations such as Quito and Guayaquil (Ecuador), Lima (Peru), Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and Santiago de Chile. It also increases the possibilities to arrive to destinations within Colombia, such as Cali, Medellin, Barranquilla, Pereira and Cartagena, among other cities.
Travelers with trips that include several segments will benefit from greater agility in processes by having a single baggage checking point; as well as the customs, immigration and baggage pickup process at the final destination, in addition to the possibility to carry two 23-kilo pieces of baggage.
Boston is now another of Avianca’s destinations in the United States of America, including flights from Bogota to Fort Lauderdale, Miami, New York, Orlando, Los Angeles and Washington D.C. and from the connection center at El Salvador, to Miami, Fort Lauderdale, New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston and San Francisco.
