As evidence of the recuperating leisure travel market, Copa’s Low-Cost Colombian subsidiary Wingo began flying twice-weekly routes between Cali, Colombia and Cancún, México on July 14. Cancún marks Wingo’s second international destination from Cali, the first being to Panama City.
Wingo is operating Boeing 737-800s on the flight with capacity for 186 passengers. Flights began at $210 USD roundtrip including taxes and fees, and the airline is allowing one change of date without penalty.
The Cancún destination adds to Wingo’s route network to and from Cali, already connecting Panamá City, San Andrés, Cartagena, and Bogotá with 26 weekly flights from Colombia’s third largest city.
Wingo says that this flight route connects Cali to its eighth international destination, complementing the city’s 21 domestic destinations. The Colombian Association of Travel & Tourism Agencies, ANATO says that Cali can expect roughly 4 million domestic passengers and 1.2 million international passenger segments this year.
