Since the restart of operations, Viva has launched a high-impact marketing campaign at the national level to jumpstart passenger air travel, while observing strict biosafety protocols to protect passenger wellbeing. To do this, the airline is offering domestic tickets starting at $59,900 COP ($15.49 USD). Viva Air says it hopes that this aggressive pricing and promotion will help to have a positive impact on the tourism sector in the country.
