Well maybe we can discuss this topic again after we know what really will happen with Avianca.
is the main subject on the future of Colombian aviation. Maybe a new take over by Continental or TACA.... and hopefully some new start ups of Fenix and others. Personally I hope that AV
can recover and that it will grow to their status that they once have had. Lets see what the next months will bring us!
Bongo.. nice info that you found on AV
. Well I can tell you that they where extremely punctually when I traveled with them last year.. I almost lost my plane on the PEI - BOG
route with them last year because of my late arrive
We also landed before scheduled time.. ok it was a domestic flight but service etc was extremely good... comparing some airliners here in Europe.... KLM would wish they have a rate of 98.3 % klm...dream on!!!
Well Colombia has currently a bad situation with the rebels and also a low economy.. But WCA, Aerorepublica and Aires are doing and well don't forget Tampa Colombia they will get 4 767's later on this year. Even AV
has added 3 more 757's to their fleet and started a charter route MAD
And maybe with a better economy ahead (at the end of last year Colombia had the best economic grow in Latin America) and Uribe (president) who's working for a better Colombia (and not for himself liked other presidents in the history of Colombia) Colombian aviation can grow fast in the near future.
has big planes to make El Dorado a bigger airport before 2025. I hope they can do it.
Colombia... can't wait to be there again!!!!!!!!!!
