For North Americans who want to sample Colombia’s beaches, jungles or urban nightlife it just got a bit easier; Colombian airline Avianca is improving flight connections to the U.S., Mexico and Canada.
Avianca’s president Fabio Villegas announced Monday that the airline is opening a new direct flight from Colombian capital Bogota to San Salvador, capital of El Salvador.
This will allow for more connections with North American cities, such as San Francisco, Houston, and Orlando, in the U.S., Toronto in Canada, and Cancun in Mexico, said Villegas.
Avianca recently merged with TACA airlines, which is based in El Salvador.
Villegas said that the carrier will soon be seeking to extend flight routes to Asia.
Avianca also recently opened a new connection between the central Colombian city of Medellin and Spain’s capital Madrid, as well as increasing flights between Bogota and the Colombian Cordoba and Santander departments.
