As part of the air and tourist reactivation between the two countries, Avianca is studying the possibility of resuming its connections to Madrid, which it operated before the pandemic, as reported by the media Holteltur.
According to Manuel Ambriz, commercial director, and Catalina Nanning, vice-president of sales and distribution of Avianca, the airline would like to resume the Cali-Madrid and Medellin-Madrid routes this summer.
Thus, the Colombian national company would again be in competition on this market, currently dominated by Iberia, with the Cali-Madrid link, and Air Europa, with the operation between Medellin and Madrid.
It is important to note that this initiative is subject to the operating capacity of the airline.

The company currently operates flights from Bogota to Madrid and Barcelona where it carried 174,000 passengers on some 800 flights in 2021. Avianca is also continuing to resume operations to Europe with the inauguration of flights to London from March 26. .
In addition, the company expressed at FITUR2022 its intention to increase the capacity of its 787 Dreamliner fleet to 291 seats, 20 for business class and 271 for economy class. This renovation would be accompanied by an improvement of the in-flight entertainment system.
