Tame resumes flights to Bogota from Quito and Guayaquil

As from next June 4 Ecuador’s Tame flag carrier will be resuming service to Bogotá from Quito and Guayaquil aboard Embraer 190 aircraft with a frequency of two daily flights every day of the week.

The reconnection ends a five-month interruption since January 3 at the start of this year. This route was a casualty of the termination of flights to Caracas on that date on grounds of operational security since Bogotá had previously been a stopover. However a daily Quito-Bogotá flight came first – on July 9, 2012 aboard Airbus A 319 – when Tame began its phase of international expansión with the extension to Caracas following later.

Tame was the first airline to link the two capitals apart from Avianca and Wingo (then Copa Colombia) and now becomes Avianca’s first competitor on the Guayaquil route. Guayaquil’s José Joaquín de Olmedo Airport thus gains its second international route by adding Bogotá to Fort Lauderdale.

There are now a total of 11 daily flights between Ecuador and Colombia with the return of Viva Air Colombia awaited for the end of July. Last year 519,762 people travelled between Quito and Bogotá, which is the most economical route due to the competition.
