Avianca has announced plans to begin flying its new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft on the Colombian airline’s Bogotá-to-London. The jet seats 250 people, including 28 in business class, and has larger seats, windows, and restrooms than the previous aircraft used.
The business class seats have a lie-flat, 180-degree bed feature, and the Bogotá-based airline boasts that the Dreamliner’s new lighting and pressurizing techniques can supposedly ease the effects of dehydration and jet lag. Each seat will also include a personal screen with a variety of entertainment options.
“The inclusion of these modern aircraft for passenger service on transatlantic routes is part of the airline’s commitment to offer a new travel experience,” said Avianca in a statement.
Avianca operates its Bogotá-to-London flight daily, making it a main hub for British travelers who want to get anywhere within South America.
The Bogotá redeye leg leaves El Dorado International Airport in the Colombian capital each night at 11:04 pm and gets to London at 3:45 pm. The London return flight leaves England at 10:40 pm and gets into Bogotá at 4:05 am. All times are local.
