The Wingo airline announced on Monday the resumption of flights from Colombia to Venezuela in October, after the presidents of the two countries said last week that the common border will be reopened on September 26, which includes air connections.

According to the Colombian company, it is estimated that the first flight will take off on October 4 when they hope to “restart the route between Bogotá and Caracas.”

“The sale of tickets for this route will begin in (the) next few days, once the aeronautical authorities approve the itineraries that have already been registered,” Wingo added in a statement.

In addition to the reestablishment of the route between Bogotá and Caracas, Wingo will offer two additional routes between Colombia and Venezuela.

“These are the flights between Medellín and Caracas, starting next October 18 (…) and between Bogotá and Valencia, once it is approved by the Venezuelan authority, which is expected to open on November 3” , added the information.

Before the pandemic, Wingo was the only Colombian airline that had a regular air connection between the two countries with four flights per week between El Dorado airport in Bogotá and Maiquetía airport in Caracas.

“We celebrate the reopening of the skies between Colombia and Venezuela and we are committed to being a relevant air operator in that market. We are going to start the operation between Bogotá and Caracas with the same capacity that we had before the pandemic,” Wingo CEO Eduardo Lombana said in the statement.

The presidents of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, and Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, announced on Friday the date of reopening of the border, closed to vehicle traffic since August 2015.

The two countries, which had not had diplomatic relations since February 2019, resumed them at the end of August after Petro appointed former senator Armando Benedetti as ambassador in Caracas, and Maduro appointed former foreign minister Félix Plasencia as the head of the Venezuelan mission in Bogotá. .
