“With the implementation of these new routes we are thinking of our customers and their time so that they travel directly, while we are making fast progress creating point-to-point routes that will allow us to have an even more efficient operation. To think of Colombia as a frequent destination is considering more than 510,000 American tourists that visit the south american country, boosting tourism between the United States and Colombia,” said Rolando Damas, Director of North American Sales for Avianca.
