Just whilst on the subject of AV expansion of flights..
Avianca will increase flights to LIM to 11 weekly. As far as I understand, they will add two in the next few weeks, and increase to 4 additional flights by April.
According to Amadeus these flights will be operated by 767s, and the schedule is as follows:
Mon, Weds, Sat and Sun: BOG 1340 - 1435 LIM
Return: LIM 1535 - 2035 BOG
AV tried extra flights to LIM, with a stop in UIO, but that was withdrawn. It was partly blamed in an increase of UIO landing fees.
I trust that AV have done their homework and that they can make this flight work.
My question is, where are they pulling an a 767 out of, or is there another one joining the fleet, as has been expected?
Additionally, EZE is already 5 x weekly. It is only programmed so until the beginning of April. The bilateral only allows for 4 x weekly frequencies, so the fifth must have been given only temporarily, perhaps pending a review of the agreement.
