The Avianca crisis has allowed other Colombian carriers to increase their operations: Although the crisis produced by the COVID-19 pandemic has affected aviation worldwide, there are exceptional cases of airlines that took advantage of this crisis and knew how to move forward and increase their operation and presence in the market.

These exceptions are not unrelated to the Colombian airline industry, where the growth of airlines that lagged behind Avianca has been evident.

Wingo Increases Its Capacity

Wingo, the Colombian low-cost carrier received an additional Boeing 737-800 for its fleet, which allows the airline to increase its capacity in the domestic and international market, by adding 1.3 million new seats to fly throughout its route network.

This increase in the number of seats that Wingo now has on the market will allow the airline to add more flights on the routes it already operates while continuing to explore possible new destinations to offer all Colombians who want to fly with pleasure and not at cost.
