Starting on March 26, in response to high demand from business and leisure travelers, Avianca will increase its flight frequencies on the Bogota, Colombia – Los Angeles route from four weekly frequencies to one daily flight.
This route will be operated on modern Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft with a 250-passenger capacity: 28 in Business Class and 22 in Economy Class. This aircraft allows a more efficient and environmentally friendly operation while offering greater comfort for passengers.
The daily flights leave Los Angeles at 2:29 a.m. and land in Bogota at 11:44 a.m., while return flights depart Bogota at 2:40 p.m. and arrive back in Los Angeles at 8:20 p.m.
The implementation of a daily flight to Los Angeles allows Avianca to strengthen its lineup of flights to the United States, the airline said. The airline currently operates more than 135 frequencies between Colombia, Peru, El Salvador, Costa Rica and Honduras and Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Miami, New York, Orlando, San Francisco and Washington.
Likewise, the airline increases its connections to Asia or North America for passengers coming from Latin America through codeshare flights with United Airlines, connecting to Denver, Honolulu, Kona, Las Vegas, Kauai, Monterrey, Phoenix, San Diego, Santa Barbara, Seattle and San Francisco as well as with Eva Air to Taipei.
Also, travelers coming from Los Angeles will have access to multiple connections via Bogota to several Latin American capitals, including Santiago de Chile, Sao Paulo, Lima and Quito. The new frequencies are available on all of the airline’s reservation systems and at www.avianca.com.
