Starting in October 2010 Lufthansa started to fly nonstop from Frankfurt to Bogotá five times a week. Iberia will increase its frequency to 2 daily flights from Madrid and Bogotá will become the third most important long haul destination for the Spanish carrier who expects a 12% passenger increase this year.
Tony Ryan, son of the Ryan Air founder, initiated the low cost carrier Viva Colombia, and plans five domestic destinations from Bogotá: Cartagena, the pearl of the Caribbean; the salsa-capital Cali; Medellin, city of eternal spring; Barranquilla, birthplace of Shakira; and Bucaramanga the capital of Santander. The new ariline will primarily compete with Aires and plans to sell tickets for as little as 16 USD.
Colombia is preparing itself for your visit and we'll be pleased to welcome you soon.
