Avianca schedules a one time non-stop Tokyo - Bogota flight

Mon Jul 20, 2020 11:29 am

As per Airline routes, Avianca scheduled a repatriation flight from Japan and China, Just found interesting that the Tokyo - Bogota segment will be flown non-stop. That's 8877-mile one-way from Tokyo Narita to Bogota (flying time 16hrs 20mins). Probably the very first ever non-stop Tokyo - Bogota flight

BOG is hot and high though. AV does not have any plane that can make it all the way. I suspect that it would have to make a stop for fuel somewhere...probably at YVR or ANC.

Even MDE is hot and high. CLO is perhaps possible.

Routing is BOG-GDL-PVG-NRT-BOG on a 787-8.

The nonstop in question is from NRT to BOG, not out of BOG, so no hot/high issue.
Try a Little VC-10derness
