The new flight will be operated by a LAN Peru A320.

This is the advertisement that has been on the press: 15 dollars cheaper than AV.



The flight (LP580) departs UIO at 3:40pm arrives in BOG at 5:10pm and goes back at 6:00pm (LP581) to UIO. Nice schedule for biz travellers.


AV had no competition on this route since summa, so this are good news to see if the fares go down a bit.

They had. VH used to continue its CCS-BOG flight to UIO. VH discontinued the BOG-UIO tag on a couple of weeks ago.

Wait, I remember the CO flight to UIO from EWR was routed EWR-BOG-UIO-BOG-EWR. I remember taking that flight a couple of times [in BusinessFirst] and was impressed with the service. Does CO still operate this daily flight using the 757-224?

It's important to note that the route as such is not new, just the frequency increase.

BOG-UIO was operated 3x weekly.

Not to mention that LAN has been operating this route for some time now, just not daily.

No, CO dowgraded the route to 73G and cancelled the BOG-UIO-BOG segments. Currently it's just EWR-BOG.

I hate to disappoint you but the Quito Mariscal Sucre Intl, SEQU/UIO is located at geographical coordinates of S00 08.5 W078 29.3; this is just 8.5 nautical miles south of the Equator.

Good news for LatAm and for LAN!

I assumed the chose the monument "La mitad del Mundo", because is very well known and close to Quito as a Icon.

I thought the carrier would be LanEcuador.

It's certainly not downtown but it's a short and easy taxi ride away. Hardly a stretch. Otavalo is also promoted in conjunction with Quito and is considerably farther out of town.

You're mistaken RCS763AV, the CO flight would leave at 7:30 AM from UIO, arriving at BOG around 9:00 AM, then it would continue to fly to EWR... on the return it would arrive at BOG around 9:00 PM from EWR, then will leave at 9:45 arriving at UIO around 10:30 PM... It was the best flight in my opinion, you could go to BOG for a day and be back at UIO the same night and avoid paying the horrendous airport taxes at BOG due to a stay of less than 24 hours... (BOG tax is around $45 if you go for business, unless you just say you go as a tourist, and it's around $30 for Ecuadorians)...
Anyways, I must say I was sooo disappointed when CO downgraded the route EWR-BOG-UIO and separated the two, with a 73G for EWR-BOG and a 738 for the new EWR-PYT-UIO flight.... I use to take the CO flight UIO-BOG all the time, and I loved it, and it was very popular, it was only $178 (including taxes).. that is why it had great loads.. really surprised me the change, and until this day, I don't really understand why CO changed it, other than maybe not enough 757s to cross the pond on the newer routes to Europe...
I wish CO would drop the UIO-PTY segment, and either make UIO-EWR direct or go back to the UIO-BOG-EWR flight... How can someone fly UIO-PTY with CO, when Copa (CO's affiliated airline) has 2 daily flights on most days.. (makes you wonder if CO's UIO-PTY segment sales anything, with way too much capacity on that small route IMHO)

Anyways, glad Lan stared a new competition to AV... My family will be taking that flight for x-mas..

As for the new LAN UIO-BOG daily, does it mean the LIM-UIO is also daily? because the flight is a Lan Peru flight, thus it would mean it starts in LIM, and is really then the flight would be LIM-UIO-BOG-UIO-LIM, and not just a UIO-BOG-UIO... am I correct? Also, does Lan Peru have 3rd freedom rights? It seems CO had them, so I guess any airline has them in Ecuador, but I would like to know that...

Quoting Aero (Reply 6):

I was wondering the same thing. As far as I see, the Lan Ecuador is a real joke, because LAN seems to only boost the LAN Peru routes and of course, the LAN (Chile) routes instead of making each "subsidy" grow proportionally... That is the only thing I don't like about LAN... making their "national" airlines (like LAN Ecuador and LAN Argentina) just a name, but not a real airline.. It's really saying, we just want to have all the benefits of being "national" but we really don't want to spend a dime in making it a real national airline.. The crews may be local, and that's about it...
I was wondering, why doesn't LAN start operating to the Galapagos Islands? Oops, maybe that's the only route they can't operate with another's country metal... Imagine "Lan Peru LIM-GYE-GPS-GYE-LIM" for $299... oh well... maybe one day LAN will invest in making their subsidies real entities than just a paper airline...

As you mentioned, apart from being able to deploy the valuable 757s for new Europe runs, the 73G is much better suited for the EWR-BOG market.

While CO's IAH-BOG is extremely easy to fill [let's remember that precisely this route registered the best loads of all international routes out of Colombia during the mid-year heavy season], EWR-BOG is a bit weaker, given that most of the VFR/ethnic traffic that goes to New York City from Colombia prefers travelling to JFK, offered daily by AV.

The 73G is just the precise capacity according to the demand. At least CO won't be going out with 60%-full 757s during this year's end high-season.

You mean 5th freedom? all airlines have 5th freedom rights on international flights between the andean community (Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and ¿Bolivia?), its an open skies agreement.

Which means that your point of supposed "lack of real competition for AV" doesn't stand. On any given day there were always 2 airlines operating the route, on some days 3. The market between BOG and UIO isn't THAT big to support a lot of carriers and frequencies either, at least not like CCS for instance. So I believe that it was just the adequate amount of competitors.

Quoting RCS763AV (Reply 16):

This is half false. The airline must be from one of the Andean Community countries in order to enjoy the privileges of the agreement, other than that, the foreign airline interested in operating any given route shall follow the normal proceedure of requesting the proper authorization.

BA well-flew CCS-BOG-CCS for many years without rights to carry neither passengers nor cargo.

I cannot judge about CCS, but in Colombia they would face several problems which I think is not worthy to assume.

First, getting the proper authorization would be a wild goose chase to say the least, or they would have to operate, involuntarily, through touristic destinations determined by each country. Not to mention that international operations out of Colombia are so expensive that the market must really be worth it.

Knowing that LAN has quite an ability to accommodate themselves to the law, even if it means some pretty controversial moves [like the whole LANArgentina case], I still believe that the prize would not be as valuable for all the effort made. BOG has already plenty of capacity to MAD. The rest of the cities offer very limited traffic to MAD: CLO is barely able to fill 2 weekly flights to MAD, and not even on its own given that the flight starts in BOG, and there is no significant market between MDE and Spain.

At least in Argentina they know what they're after: a space in the very lucrative EZE-MIA for instance.

The only way LAN could fly to MAD from Venezuela would be from PMV (Porlamar, Isla de Margarita), because the current bilateral doesn't allow more than 4 airlines flying between CCS and Spain. I say PMV because it is an open skies airport. LAN could easily fly SCL-MAD via PMV and take pax there, they could make it work at least 2X weekly. Chileans and Europeans could have another carrier to visit Margarita and if LAN manages to codeshare with VH, Aserca or Laser they can take connecting pax from CCS.

Also you also need to remember that no matter how LAN is in love with 767s they only have 767-300s that doesn't have the legs to do the route, neither from BOG, Neither from MDE, and i really don'0t think they would deply an A340 do to those route where they will find a heavy competition from AV, IB (and NM).
