Aerolinea de Antioquia shutters update April 2019

Update: 3 Medellin Airlines Pick Up Routes Left by ADA

Colombia’s airline oversight agency Aeronautica Civil de Colombia (ACC) announced April 5, 2019 that three airlines – Aeroejectivos de Antioquia SA(AASA), Servicios Aéreos Panamericanos S.A.S (Sarpa) and Servicio Aéreo De Capurganá S.A. (Searca) are taking-over the flight routes left by the shut-down Aerolinea de Antioquia (ADA).

According to ACC, AASA will have two weekly flights from Medellin’s downtown Olaya Herrera (EOH) airport to-and-from El Bagre, Acandi and Tolu.

Sarpa will have seven weekly flights to-and-from EOH to Bahía and Quibdó, as well as seven other weekly flights to-and-from EOH to Nuquí, Quibdó and Pereira.

As for Searca, it will offer twice-weekly flights to-and-from EOH and Acandí, three weekly flights to-and-from EOH and El Bagre; seven weekly flights to-and-from EOH and Montelíbano; and two weekly flights to-and-from EOH and Tolú.

The new flight services will “guarantee the connectivity of travelers that move to and from the department of Antioquia that formerly used ADA,” said Aeronautica director Juan Carlos Salazar.

“We will continue working to motivate the entry of other operators that facilitate mobility in this region of the country,” Salazar added.
