In order to offer Chicago travelers more and improved connectivity options while taking advantage of Avianca’s global route network, the airline opened its direct flight between Chicago O´Hare International Airport and its hub in El Salvador. Four weekly flights will be offered on an Airbus A319 aircraft with a capacity of 120 passengers, 12 in business class and 108 in coach cabin.
This route provides Chicago passengers an effective connection through El Salvador to different cities in Central and South America such as: Belize City, Belize; Guatemala City, Guatemala; Tegucigalpa and San Pedro Sula in Honduras; Managua, Nicaragua; San Jose, Costa Rica; Panama; Cali, Medellin: Bogota, Colombia; and Lima, Peru; along with Guayaquil and Quito in Ecuador.
In the same way, passengers coming from these destinations will gain access to the city of Chicago through the airline´s hub in El Salvador.
“We are strengthening the route network efficiencies in our operation to better serve our customers in the American continent and Europe. Avianca is working to provide a wider route network that offers our passengers the most attractive travel options,” said Rolando Damas, Avianca sales director for North America and Asia.
Three additional flights were added on Nov. 15 in order to operate on a daily basis.
