daily with A319...

The problem is that a big part of the mentioned carriers do not exist anymore...

I think BOG will get back LH with the A340 sooner or later.

As far as I know, Air Plus Comet serves 3 times weekly MAD-BOG by 747 and AirMadrid comes to BOG and CTG by A330. Isn't there AirCanada as well going to Bogota with A319's having pretty good numbers?

Correct.

LB flies 4 times a week on a triangle routing combined with CCS. 727-200 has been used for quite a while on the route, though some time ago they've been sending the 737-300 as well.

MX flies daily to BOG on A319 off-season, and 757-200 on heavier travelling periods.




Quoting Aces727 (Thread starter):
Current CLO:
American 737
Copa 737
Continental 737

TAME also flies to CLO, three times a week with F-28.

Edit: Added Avior to the list. Thanks Luis.

is Continental not also operating daily to UIO or other southern destination from BOG continuing the service from EWR?

Pretty well summed-up RCS763AV, just a couple of notes:

Quoting RCS763AV (Reply 8):
Cubana IL-62 4x weekly to HAV

Currently, Cubana is only flying once a week to BOG, on Saturdays.

Quoting RCS763AV (Reply 8):
LAN Group A320/767-300 daily to LIM and 3x weekly to SCL and MIA not sure is theres flights to UIO

LIM is not daily, but 6x weekly.

UIO is served 3 times a week.

GYE is served once a week from BOG.

SCL and MIA, as you well mentioned, are 3x weekly each.

Quoting RCS763AV (Reply 8):
LAB 737-300/727-200 4x weekly to VVI/LPB

LAB's BOG/CCS flight ends in VVI. In order to reach LPB an onward connection is required.

Quoting RCS763AV (Reply 8):
Aerolineas Argentinas A310 4x weekly to EZE

AR also offers 2 weekly services to CCS, and 2 weekly from CCS.

Quoting RCS763AV (Reply 8):
Aires flies daily to AUA, CUR and PTY (stopping in CTG)

Hold on there. BAQ would never support a daily flight to AUA, it only goes 2 weekly. PTY isn't daily either, just 6x weekly.

Quoting RCS763AV (Reply 8):
From CTG, AV has 2x weekly to MIA which goes to 4x weekly in high season

It varies. The past high-season CTG-MIA went 5x weekly.

No. The BOG-UIO leg got cancelled early last June, the same day when BOG-EWR got downgraded to 73G.

Then it will become daily soon. They advertise a lot on El Tiempo Travel section about their daily flights to LIM.

Forgot to add to the list, AM flies 2x weekly MEX-ADZ charters in the mid-year and December seasons!

Edit: Am flights

My mistake, it is daily. I had the idea that it operated nonstop 3 times a week, and via UIO other 3, leaving one day without service.

Now that I checked, BOG-LIM does operate nonstop only 3x weekly, but BOG-UIO-LIM goes 4xweekly.

So LIM is daily and UIO 4x times a week instead of 3.

What about Air Transat? Don't they fly to ADZ?

Any guess as to which new carrier will fly to Colombia will be? I've been hearing that some possible candidates may include LH, KL and AZ (which have already flown to BOG before). Any others?
