After ceasing operations almost seven months ago, international flights will resume on September 21st, according to the Ministry of Transportation. Two inaugural international flights are scheduled to take place before that date, on the 19th.
The first commercial flight to depart Colombia will be operated by budget airline Viva Air, traveling a route from Medellín to Cartagena to Miami. Meanwhile, the first flight to touch down in Colombia will be operated by Spirit, with a Fort Lauderdale (US) to Cartagena route.
Along with Viva Air and Spirit, American Airlines will also begin flying in September; Avianca, JetBlue, Wingo, and KLM will begin flying in October. Other airlines will scale up operations little by little in November, December, and in early 2021.
