Wingo announced the launch of four new international routes, with which it expects to expand its coverage and continue consolidating its position as the country’s largest low-cost airline in terms of destinations operated abroad.
With the routes: Bogota-Lima, Medellin-Punta Cana, Cali-Cancun and Panama City-San Jose, starting next June the Colombian airline will expand its operating plan based on its growth.
The inaugural flight of the Medellin-Punta Cana route will be on July 3, and will continue to operate twice a week. Round trip fares start at US$ 199 (about $ 750,000).
The Bogota-Lima route will start operating twice weekly flights as from June 28. The Peruvian capital is one of the most attractive tourist destinations for Colombians, thanks to its gastronomy, historical value and the possibilities it offers for each visitor.
The new route will have an introductory fare starting at US$ 179 (about $ 670,000) for the round trip.
The airline will launch the direct route between Cali and the Mexican paradise starting July 14. The new route between Cali and Cancun will operate with two flights per week, with prices starting at US$ 210 (about $ 780,000), for round trips.
In addition, Wingo plans to start flights on the new route between Panama City and San José on June 21, which will operate with two flights a week and fares start at US$ 199 (about $ 750,000) for round trips.
Carolina Cortizo, general manager of Wingo, explained that, “We will continue to demonstrate that traveling abroad with pleasure and not with cost, in an airline that takes care of the traveler, is possible with Wingo, all leveraged on our experience in the operation of international flights”.
“Since our arrival in the market, we have been the low-cost airline with international destinations par excellence and it is precisely the knowledge of this market that we will continue to put at the service of the entire region with the announcement of these 4 new routes, with which we now reach 28 in Latin America and the Caribbean,” he said.
In addition, Cotizo emphasized that: “Our model is focused on travelers and their needs; that is why each new route is an opportunity to demonstrate to many more people the quality of our service and the level of good vibes we offer at Wingo. In that sense, with these 4 new routes, the #ModoWingo will reach thousands of new travelers who will be able to enjoy our way of flying”.
From now on, tickets for these new routes will be available on the Wingo airline’s website, with the planned launch fares.
Likewise, taking into account the current situation and the possible inconveniences or special needs that travelers may have, tickets will have a free change of date.
