by Maria Lisella


Avianca started four weekly direct flights from Boston to the airline’s hub in Bogota, Colombia, on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday on the Boston–Bogota route and on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday on the return.

The new service makes Avianca the only airline to directly join Boston with Bogota.

Avianca operates from Terminal E at Boston Logan International Airport to the El Dorado Airport in Bogota, on Airbus A319 aircraft with a capacity for 120 passengers, 12 in Business Class and 108 on Economy Class.

Avianca’s U.S. service includes 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.

ProColombia, the tourism arm of the government, recently reported a 52% spike  in U.S. visitors to Colombia between 2012 when 328,886 US travelers arrived compared to 498,960 in 2016. Other advances in the tourism sector include 200 new hotels, or 25,000 additional rooms between 2010 and 2016.

Tip of the Day

I do think there are possibilities for traveler advisors to make money doing domestic trips. I charge a planning fee for my time and expertise, and then book commissionable hotels and activities that meet the client’s needs.
