Discount Colombian airline Wingo announced this week that it will launch two new flights from Bogotá to the Dominican Republic and Curaçao.
The inaugural flight from the Colombian capital to Santo Domingo’s Las Américas International Airport will take place on April 13. This will become the second route between the two countries offered by Wingo, which already maintains a flight between Bogotá and resort hotspot Punta Cana.
The first flight from Bogotá’s El Dorado International Airport to Curaçao International Airport will take off on April 11.
Tickets for both locations are already for sale through the company’s website.
Wingo, which is a subsidiary of Panama-based Copa Airlines, has been slowly expanding its list of destinations since its start in 2016. Unlike discount market rival VivaAir, and leading airlines servicing Colombia, Avianca and LATAM, it has focused less on general connectivity across the Andean country’s populations centers and more on top tourist destinations and short-haul flights around the Caribbean.
The company flies from Bogotá, Cartagena, Cali, and Barranquilla to Colombian getaway island San Andrés, for example, and offers flights from the its Bogotá hub to Aruba, Cancún, Punta Cana, Havana, and Panama City, among other destinations.
