This new route commenced operations this week and is part of a commercial agreement with Delta Air Lines. The service is facilitated by an Airbus A320 aircraft, offering over 9,900 seats monthly and enhancing the international operation of LATAM Airlines Colombia, which now encompasses nine international routes, including Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Brazil, and the United States destinations.
The nonstop service, lasting approximately four hours, not only connects Bogotá and the globally recognized family-friendly destination of Orlando but also opens up a plethora of U.S. destinations within Delta’s extensive network. The inaugural event at the El Dorado Airport in Bogotá saw the participation of authorities, special guests, and customers from both airlines, marking a significant milestone in the joint venture agreement.
Camilo Prieto, the Commercial Manager of LATAM Airlines Colombia, highlighted that the United States remains a pivotal international destination for Colombian travelers. The new service is aligned with the strategy of providing direct connectivity, ensuring safety, and award-winning service in the region. Meanwhile, Gianmarco Mazzetti, Delta Sales Manager for Colombia, emphasized that the new service would enhance international operations, offering optimal connections between North and South America for business and leisure travelers.
