Avianca Airlines Completes Reconfiguration of 104 Airbus A320 Aircraft

Avianca Airlines has announced the completion of reconfiguration of 104 Airbus A320 aircraft in less than two years, thanks to the efforts of 1,500 technicians.

With the reconfiguration of this fleet, Avianca offers its customers 20 percent more capacity per aircraft with a total of 180 seats differentiated between Premium, Plus and Economy. This will allow it to continue to offer more competitive prices, transport more passengers per aircraft, contribute to the decongestion of some airports and reduce CO2 emissions per passenger transported by up to 15.35 percent, making its operation more sustainable. In addition, with the progress made in reconfiguring its fleet during 2022, Avianca transported more than 24.6 million passengers on 187,000 flights operated.

"Without a doubt, the reconfiguration of our fleet makes us more efficient and competitive, brings us ever closer to what we set out in our business plan, and also leads us to achieve the goal of being an Avianca for everyone," said Adrian Neuhauser, Avianca's president and CEO.

As part of its strategy to increase capacity in the different markets where it operates, Avianca will continue to incorporate A320 aircraft that will temporarily have a different configuration but will also enter the reconfiguration process during 2023.
