Next Saturday, September 19, the leading low-cost airline in the region, Viva Air will have the honor of becoming the first Colombian airline to reopen the operation of international flights in Colombia, after 6 months of paralysis due to the pandemic.
The international route selected by Viva Air for the restart is Medellín – Cartagena – Miami – Cartagena – Medellín on Airbus A320 CEO aircraft with the capacity to carry 188 passengers.
It should be noted that for this honor, Viva Air’s first international flight will operate 3 times a week on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Similarly, Viva Air is awaiting authorization from the Peruvian government to restart a second international route to Lima.
Félix Antelo, president and CEO of the Viva Air Group, said in this regard to this honor:
“As a Colombian airline that ‘does things differently’, we are very happy and proud, not only to fly internationally again to take passengers to their preferred travel destinations, but also to have the honor of being the first to do so. This is proof of the tireless work we have done for months and our commitment to air inclusion of the country and the region with air transport as an essential public service.
Not only are we the first to fly international again, we are also the first to get approved and certified biosecurity protocols. We have the ‘Certified Check-In’ biosafety seal and we put our protocols to the test with more than 320 special repatriation flights carried out”
Félix Antelo, president and CEO of the Viva Air Group.
