Viva Air, Colombian ultra low-cost airline, made its first flight to Brazil this Wednesday. The Medellin-São Paulo route, with three weekly frequencies, is operated with the Airbus A320neo with 188 seats, and the longest operated by the carrier, which has expanded its international network.
The inaugural flight had a flight time of 5 hours and 42 minutes, according to data from FlightRadar24.
In addition to São Paulo, Viva Air flies to Buenos Aires and Lima, in South America, as well as cities such as Punta Cana, Cancún, Mexico City and Orlando and Miami, in the United States.
The airline’s fleet consists of 23 A320 jets, half of them of the Neo variant, with greater range and economy.
Since the announcement of the flight to Brazil in February, Viva Air has undergone important changes. At the end of April, the company closed an agreement with Avianca to transfer its control to the traditional Colombian airline.
In May, Avianca and Gol announced the creation of Abra group, a holding company that will bring together several airlines under the same management.
Viva Air has just completed ten years in operation, during which time it transported more than 31 million passengers.
