Avianca CEO reflects on 2017 strike

Avianca CEO, Hernan Rincon, recently sat down with CNBC to discuss the impact of the strike by Avianca employees last year. The strike lasted 51 days and some flights were grounded due to a number of pilots being involved. However, one year on, Herman seemed positive about the progress that Avianca has made since the strike. He stated that Avianca was well prepared from a financial standpoint before the strike and that's one of the reasons that Avianca have reported its strongest first quarter in five years for Q12018, despite the strike.


Herman said, "this case went all the way to the supreme court and the supreme court ruled in favour of Avianca. And we're now in the process of rebuilding our routes and rebuilding our schedule. Today, we're about 95% capacity, as it compares to what it was prior to the strike and we'll be at full capacity in about three months." He continued that long-term this is a good thing for Avianca. Everyone within the airline is now at peace and the airline continues to grow.


Herman also addressed their recent decision to postpone some of their aircraft orders, "the reason we are thinking about postponing some of our orders is different. It's the fact that we have decided to retain some of the aircraft that we thought we were going to retire earlier. We've found out ways to refurbish the aircraft and extend their life, so we're retaining those. So, the growth plans are exactly the same. The timing of the deliveries is different, but only the timing. Not the amount of aircraft. Only the timing is being changed."

Avianca launches fourth European route

Avianca has decided to make Munich its Fourth destination in Europe, in addition to Barcelona, London and Madrid. The airline hopes to start the 9355km in November 2018 subject to government approval, with Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft. According to Routes Online, Star Alliance partner Lufthansa already serves the Frankfurt-Bogota route daily with Airbus A340-300s. It is understood that Avianca was considering both Munich and Frankfurt, however, the selection of Munich gives it access to Lufthansa’s vast European network without attacking the German airline’s exiting route to Colombia. Sabre data shows an estimated 122,847 passengers flew between Colombia and Germany in 2017, with the largest indirect flows on Bogota-Frankfurt, Bogota-Munich and Bogota-Berlin, mainly connecting through Madrid.

Avianca Airlines and Sabre renew technology partnership

Sabre Corporation (NASDAQ: SABR), the leading technology provider to the global travel industry, today announced a renewed partnership with Avianca for Sabre AirCentre Flight Explorer, its comprehensive flight tracking and monitoring solution. In conjunction with Flight Explorer, Avianca will utilize the Surface Manager module to provide full awareness of aircraft location on the ground, even before takeoff and after landing.


Flight Explorer streamlines data delivery, allows for intuitive flight management, enables integrated flight planning and allows users to set advanced, flight-specific thresholds based on industry or company requirements.  Flight Explorer also streamlines route analysis through graphical route displays that include real-time data such as weather and airspace restrictions. These capabilities help Avianca make decisions based on the most current data, ultimately saving on costs and minimizing disruptions which results in a better passenger experience.

Flight tracking is not a new concept. Before computers, airlines used flight plans to manually estimate locations at given times, but since then flight tracking technology has advanced to incorporate more sophisticated data – not only aircraft position but additional data such as weather and air traffic control information. Flight Explorer can easily adapt to include incremental data sources as they became available, meaning Flight Explorer is uniquely positioned to accommodate evolving industry recommendations and expanding data sources as the need arises.

"We are proud to continue our partnership and help Avianca adapt internal processes to meet increasingly complex company and regulatory requirements," said Vinit Doshi, chief marketing officer, Sabre Airline Solutions. "Flight Explorer delivers industry leading monitoring capabilities and does so without burdening the technology teams or end users."

Avianca will also rely on Flight Explorer's Surface Manager module for gate-to-gate monitoring, which delivers even more comprehensive decision support, improves efficiency and reduces the risk of error.

"Flight Explorer simplifies our route analysis with real-time data such as weather and airspace restrictions, allowing us to make quicker decisions and offer a better travel experience to our customers," said Miguel Montoya, senior vice president of technique and operations at Avianca.

Aerogal Merges with Avianca Aerogal was based in Quito and operated domestic flights in Ecuador. It was also the main provider of flights to the Galapagos Islands. Internationally Aerogal flew to Medellin and Bogota in neighbouring Colombia and from December ’08 to Miami in the USA. In 2009, AeroGal merged with the Colombian airline Avianca, and with VIP Ecuador in 2012. Avianca currently owns 81% of the airline. Despite the purchase by Avianca, AeroGal continued using its own identity until 2014, and will continue to operate in Ecuador. In 2014 the airline was renamed Avianca Ecuador. Aerogal Flights to Galapagos Aerogal’s main function was to connect the capital of Ecuador with the fascinating islands of the Galapagos (airports: Baltra and San Crisobal). However, it also had developed a network of domestic destinations: flights to Guayaquil, Quito, Manta, and flights to Cuenca. International services operated to Medellín and Bogotá, Colombia, from Guayaquil and Quito and from December 2008 operated a Quito-Guayaquil- Miami flight on Sunday and Monday. The new flights were timed so as to allow excellent connections in Miami for passengers travelling from London and other European airports. In fact the Miami connection offered the shortest total journey time from London to Guayaquil of 15h 30 mins (December 2008). Going forward Aerogal believed it could remain the best Ecuadorian carrier by offering the highest levels of customer service and being recognised as an innovative, go ahead airline. Aerogal operated an all Boeing fleet of 15 aircraft: a 727-200, twelve 737’s and two 757-200. One of the 757 aircraft also operated on the Miami service. The airline of Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. The Galapagos Islands are a must-see in any one travellers lifetime and Avianca Ecuador (formally known as Aerogal) is a great way to get there. Avianca Ecuador (Aerogal) is also an active supporter of the World Wildlife Fund’s Marine educational programme in the Galapagos, which creates awareness and promotes ecologically sound tourism. Aerogal was previously awarded the prestigious Sustainable Tourism Award by the IGTOA. At the present time they have 1 daily flight from Quito to Baltra, in addition to 6 weekly flights from Quito and 5 from Guayaquil to San Cristobal. This is a trip of a life time, and Avianca Ecuador (Aerogal) provides an excellent service for its passengers. This is one company that definitely deserves to be referred to as a responsible airline and we applaud their fantastic work in the conservation and protection of a group of islands that are becoming ever more vulnerable and fragile. The Galapagos are worth protection and thank you Aerogal for doing your bit! START: Modules Anywhere END: Modules Anywhere The Best of Both Aerogal and Avianca Aerogal has served passengers flying to, from and within the Ecuadorean market since 1986 and in 2014, it was announced that Aerogal would merge with Avianca, an important, fast growing airline grouping which holds the umbrella brand for seven carriers including Avianca of Colombia, TACA of Central America and Avianca Brazil. Aerogal's network is now operated under the brand name of Avianca, using aircraft branded in Avianca livery but maintains its own identity within the group as Avianca Ecuador.

Bookings can still be made here on the network of services once operated by Aerogal. Where some of the routes have not been taken over by Avianca, we offer an alternative on a range of other carriers. Avianca is Latin America’s longest established airline, and your flight is underpinned by decades of experience.

Part of this order is destined to renew the fleet of Aerogal/Avianca Ecuador. The order is the largest single order ever made in the history of Latin America aviation and it is clear that Avianca Ecuador is destined to be a major part of the success story being developed by the Avianca family of airlines
