Colombians who want to see national football team star James Rodríguez play live for German league champs Bayern Munich next season are in luck.
Starting in November, the country’s largest airline, Avianca, will begin operating a flight from Bogotá to Munich, the company’s first direct route to Germany. This will also be the only flight that any company operates between the two international cities, according to FlightGlobal.
The flight, operated by a Boeing 787, will begin departing from the Colombian capital’s El Dorado International Airport five times per week starting on November 16, the airline announced in April.
This flight to Munich will become the Bogotá-based carrier’s fourth direct route to Europe. It currently flies from Bogotá to Madrid, Barcelona, and London.
