Wingo, a low-cost carrier subsidiary of Copa Airlines focused on Colombian operations, has launched a new route flying four times a week between Medellín and Cartagena.
The inaugural flight took off on October 31, and the airline is now offering this route every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. Overall, this represents 6,000 available seats each week between Colombia’s second-largest city and its Caribbean tourism jewel on the coast.
Wingo now operates eight routes from Medellín’s José María Córdova International Airport in Rionegro. The airline’s other flights from Medellín fly to Bogotá, Panama City, Cancún, Santo Domingo, Punta Cana, Havana, and Aruba.
“This route represents great news for Medellín, as it means the return of the offer of low-cost flights to national beach destinations, such as Cartagena,” said Jorge Jiménez, commercial and planning vice president of Wingo, in an announcement.
“At Wingo we continue to be committed to Medellín, a city in which we have two of our aircraft based and which represents more than 20% of our operation.”
