The Region Loses Air Connectivity

The airline Aliana announced the cancellation of flight routes from Guatemala to the United States and Tegucigalpa, and from the capital of El Salvador to destinations in North and South America.

Monday, March 25, 2019

Some routes from Bogota, Guatemala and San Salvador will be canceled consisting of fleet changes and focus on routes with higher demand, the airline said in a statement.

From the Aliana statement:

Bogotá March 22, 2019. As part of the transformation plan announced last February, Aliana adjusts its network of routes to and from North and Central America. With the sale of the entire Embraer 190 fleet, routes previously operated with these aircraft will now use Airbus A320 offering greater comfort and up to 56% additional capacity per flight. Some routes from Bogota, Guatemala and San Salvador will also be cancelled consistent with fleet changes and focus on routes with higher demand.

Silvia Mosque, Commercial Executive Vice President of Aliana, said: "We are aware of the impact these decisions have on our clients. We have made bets on new routes in recent years, and we will continue to explore market opportunities, reviewing competitiveness and market demand to resume these operations when prudent."
