For the time being AR
will only start the BOG
service with an A310.
Lima and CCS
are planned with A310's and MD
-80. So finally 4 days a week less boring with an A310 of AR
and a318 of AC
A friend of mine in BOG
told me that Aerocontinente is using a mix of planes to BOG
: 727/767's and 757's so that's nice I think but yes the same stuff like Colombian carriers.
Thanks for the link on the A319 range. I didn't knew that it had a huge range, even bigger then the A320. Yes it would be nicer to see another widebody A340 in BOG
comparing to the A319 and all 767's of AV
and others. But I think at this moment it all depends on numbers of pax and distance. The 767 is still strong at this point. AC
and other American carriers are using their 767's from north to south america. Even LAN use their 767's frequently on this routes and their a340's to Europe. IB
has 747's but no 767's for the BOG
route so the A340 is cheaper..but I think when they had the 767's they would use it right now. KLM also changed their routes to SA
and Aruba/Curacao. I think the political and economic positions in Colombia/Venezuela region was not good for the aviation industry over the last 2 years. But I think this will change. And we now see the beginning of it. New routes are planned by Colombian and foreign carriers.
Ok at this point it's a little bit boring to see a lot of the same planes but AF
and Alitalia are considering to come back to Colombia. And I think that BA
will change (one of the first) their equipment (767-into 777) to BOG
in the near future... 1-2 years from now. They even consider (from what I've heard of BA
staff) to plan and restart the LHR
route without the stop in CCS
. All depends on the Colombian economy and the situation where Colombia is for many years now.
yes your right on the bilateral agreement between Colombia and Canada.
Without this their will not be any flights. Is their an bilateral agreement then the Aerocivil must approve the flights.
I was wondering about the bilateral agreements between Colombia and the UK/ France/Germany and Italy. Are they still the same (Germany /Italy)? And the slots that AV
had?? That must be difficult for LHR
if they consider to fly the BOG
route again. I know they kept their slots for a long time until 2 years ago, when they sold them to BA
who changed LGW
to go to BOG
Colombia... can't wait to be there again!!!!!!!!!!
