After the launch party, Avianca discovers that she will not be able to travel to Cuba

After the launch party, Avianca discovers that she will not be able to travel to Cuba


Avianca announced the postponement of the start of flights to Cuba: the Bogota-Havana route, which was scheduled to start on July 2, 2024, has been postponed due to operational problems. The airline has not set a new date for the start of these operations, according to what it reported Flight line.

Customers who have already purchased tickets for travel between Bogotá and Havana will be able to request a corresponding refund through the Avianca website, the airline’s mobile application or directly with their travel agencies. Avianca encourages passengers to update their contact details when booking to facilitate communication if necessary.

This news adds a degree of complexity to Cuba’s air connection with South America.

A few days ago, the Bolivian airline (BoA) announced the suspension of its route between Santa Cruz de la Sierra and Havana as of July 25, 2024. Boaviana de Aviación (BoA) has operated this route for nine months since its launch in October 2023. Adds suspension BoA referred to the previous decision taken by Aerolínea Argentinas and Cuban Airlines to cease operations in the island’s capital.


With the departure of BoA and the delay in the start of the Avianca route, Cuba’s connection with South America depends on other airlines such as LATAM and Copa Airlines, which continue to offer flights via Lima and Panama City, respectively. In addition, low-cost airline Wingo continues to operate flights between Bogotá and Havana, providing an economical alternative for passengers.

The restart of the Avianca route was seen as a positive step towards improving Cuba’s connectivity with the rest of South America, as it offers more than 2,100 weekly seats and connections to more than 75 destinations in 25 countries. However, with this delay, the island will have to continue to rely on existing communications and a limited supply of direct flights.
