Punctuality and Safety


According to an AV press release, the airline maintained a strong punctuality indicator from between 95.41% and 98.95%.

Furthermore, due to the COVID-19 pandemic Julián Laverde, AV Vice President of Network Operations said that Colombians “can be sure that we maintain and apply the strictest biosecurity protocols so that they can fly safely”.

While 929,000 passengers is small compared to the 2,666,097 transported by the airline in the last holiday season, one must consider the airline resilient considering the financial woes it faces amid the pandemic.
