Avianca, which is now the national air carrier of Columbia, was originally founded in 1919 as SCADTA, thus considered the oldest air carrier in Columbia and the second oldest airline in the world. We operate our flights with Bogotá, D.C. as our headquarters and from the El Dorado International Airport as our major hub. Avianca Air includes a cluster of seven airlines of Latin America, operating our flight operations to function as a single air carrier by making use of a code-sharing arrangement. We are the second major air service providers in Latin America and the biggest in Colombia. We have the widest network of destinations in cooperation with our subsidiaries in Latin America.
I have booked flights from Medeliin to Bogota connecting to Bridgetown Barbados on a Saturday morning. I have allowed 2 hrs and 35 minutes in Bogota between flights. The more I read about Avianca and delayed or cancelled flights the more I think I need to allow more time or perhaps just fly to Bogota the day before which would add about $300 in costs and cost a day of touring. The flight from Bogota departs at 14:00.
As the oldest and the largest air service providers in Columbia, we operate our domestic as well as international flights from different hubs in the country. We have our major hub at El Dorado International Airport in Bogotá, Monseñor Óscar Arnulfo Romero International Airport in San Salvador, and Jorge Chávez International Airport in Lima.
