Colombia is one of the key South American markets, with over 50 million people and a GDP per Capita close to $8,000. It has a mature aviation sector with Avianca as its flag carrier and other airlines like LATAM Colombia, which is a source of interline traffic for many airlines who wish to source local traffic.

Colombia is also known for its vibrant culture, dynamic economy, and its perfect location in South America. It has Pacific Ocean to the west, and is surrounded by Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, and the Caribbean Sea, offering immense potential for tourism and aviation growth. Bogotá, the capital city, serves as a major hub for commerce, culture, and connectivity in Latin America.  

Colombia’s strategic position in Latin America will be an enhancement to AirlinePros International network, and the Colombian market will benefit from new products and innovative solutions and services for local travel suppliers, travel agencies, and consumers.
