Colombia-based aviation giant Avianca announced February 13 the launch of its new “Avianca Express” division for new routes including flights from Medellin’s downtown Olaya Herrera airport (EOH).

Absent from EOH for 20 years, “Avianca Express” soon will launch flights utilizing ATR-72 propeller aircraft to and from downtown Medellin -- initially serving Quibdó, Montería and Bucaramanga, starting March 30.

“Given the importance of Medellín as a development hub in the Colombian territory, the Olaya Herrera airport will be one of the most robust foci of operations that Avianca Express will have to connect the regions of the country,” according to the company.

Avianca Express also announced new flights to-and-from Bogota to cities including Corozal, Florencia, Ibagué, Manizales and Villavicencio, according to the company.

Medellin is the only city in Colombia with two airports: Downtown EOH for domestic flights mainly to smaller cities, and Jose Maria Cordova (JMC) international airport in the eastern Medellin suburb of Rionegro.
