I didnt know AV flew up to Stockholm! Of the odd and now gone routes to Europe I only remebered LIS, AMS and ZRH.
Other routes were FCO, LHR, FRA and CDG, but those were operated until the late 90s to early 2000s....where there more? Now only MAD stands...hope they start new routes soon! (At leas Efromovich said so)

That was a great photo.
During the late 80's I recall seeing on Avianca's magazine the route
BOG-MAD-CDG-FRA, that was on the 747.
then in the mid 90's I believe Avianca was flying non stop from BOG to MAD, LHR, and CDG with the 767-200ER.
In the 70's Avianca had the 707 operating to Europe.

I hope that Avianca gets back to Europe with the 787!!

AV operated nostop to europe to FRA, LHR, MAD, CDG in the late 90s.
In the mid-90s, FCO was also served.

From the 80s down I dont know, it would be neice to do a list of all of AV´s routes to Europe in history, frecuency and routing.

they used the 707 also late 80s and early 90s to europe (fra for example)

till when? I can not remember that I thought AV cut the flights in the 80s.

That one special flight to Stockholm was to pick up Gabriel Garcia Marquez after he received his Nobel Prize in literature for "Cien Años de Soledad".

Also AV operated Zurich until the late 80's on a once a week scheduled normal flight on B707's.

Its also dumb to tell someone not to post a topic b/c you dont fell like it. Plus, i payed more then what he did, so he kinda doesnt have the right to tell me what to post.

As long as he paid he has the right to say whatever he wants. You just paid to get rid of the pop-ups and annoying ads, which you could've done for free with a program like Spybot.

If I recall correctly back in 1990 Avianca's network was:
From BOG:
To:
MAD-CDG-FRA
ZRH
LHR
MIA
JFK
MEX-LAX
PTY
SJU-SDQ
AURBA-CURACAO
CCS
GIG
UIO
LIM
SCL-EZE

Also;

MIA, JFK, ARUBA & CURACAO Were served from MDE
MIA, JFK Were served from CLO
MIA was served from CTG and BAQ, they also tried from ADZ, but were not sucessfull, it was on tuesdays (MDE-ADZ_MIA)

LAX, SJU, SDQ, CDG, FRA, ZRH, LHR > No longer in AV's network compared to 1990.

FLL, GRU, GUAYAQUIL, PUNTA CANA > Are new to the list comparing it to 1990. (not sure about GRU).

I also remember Avianca operating to EWR back in the late 90's

Iberia used to Fly from Madrid to Bogota via San Juan on DC-10, mid 80's. And
Aerocondor used to fly Bogota-San Juan on A300.

Back in the 70's and 80's I know that Aerocondor, Avianca, and Aerotal operated flights between the US and Colombia, but I am not sure which American airlines flew into Colombia, (Eastern, Braniff??)

Wow!! Nice pic! What a contrast seeing an AV jet plowing past the snow. I'm so used to seeing them against lush Andean backdrops. I can only wonder what the reaction was from everyone at ARN that night. I hope they expand in Europe again (maybe they'll come back to LAX too).

BTW, just got back from flying to EZE on them last week. Good service and nice to see them shed those dull Summa colors. For fun I hopped on the Puente Aereo shuttle bus at El Dorado which drove right past their hangers and got a quick behind-the-scene look at their maintenance operations. Very cool.

Odd question but I didn't realize that Colombia that many ties to Sweden.. or was it a political flight?

25 Post contains links and images Legacy135 : If you travel to South America and don't mind to go trough MAD check out AV! They have a real good service, friendly staff and very interesting busin
26 Post contains images Ljungdahl : The answer was in fact some replies earlier: IIRC, this was an one-off occasion with Avianca operating into ARN, to celebrate the Nobel Prize a group
27 RCS763AV : AV should be starting new Euro routes soon, my bets are on FRA first...
28 MATURRO727 : Hey. AV757: thanks for your info about Gabriel Garcia and his nobel prize and good to know why that gorgeous AV747 was in ARN. BTW hey Stefano !!! how
