Avianca Set To Take Off From Toronto

Avianca is now selling tickets for its new Toronto-Bogotá route, which begins operation in December.

Initially, Avianca will be offering 3 weekly frequencies for the Toronto-Bogotá route and another 3 for the return Bogota-Toronto route.

The flights will be operated using Airbus A320 aircraft with a capacity for 150 passengers, which represents an offer of about 4,000 weekly seats available to travellers.

Rolando Damas, General Director of Avianca for Mexico, North America, the Caribbean and Asia, said: “Connecting Canada with Colombia is a strategic point for Avianca’s proposal to have more direct flights and have the most robust network in the region. We are excited about this new route and we know that with the product and service that we offer, the Canadian passenger will choose us for their flights to Colombia and other destinations in South America, with which we offer important connectivity from the Bogota hub.”

Flights will leave Toronto at 22:50 and arrive in Bogota at 05:00. Northbound flights will leave Bogota at 15:20 and arrive in Toronto at 21:30. The flights will be on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. They are subject to government approval.

Jorge Alfredo Díaz Bravo, consul general of Colombia in Toronto, said that, “The opening of this route is great news for the Colombian community, for our country and for national tourism.”

The opening of the Toronto-Bogotá route joins the launch and reactivation of 12 additional routes that will be part of the wide catalog of destinations offered by the airline from the next few months.

Currently, Avianca offers its customers one of the most robust networks in Latin America with 99 routes, more than 2,680 flights per week and nearly 400,000 weekly seats.
