United Airlines announced on Friday, November 30, of the current year, its interest in the alliance of three bands with Avianca from Colombia and Copa from Panama, which main objective is to integrate the services and the distribution of the revenues.
Although, this agreement is still subject to the approval of the regulatory authorities, it seeks to expand the options available for passengers, so that they can fly in any of the companies as if they were one, which will cover an approximate of 12,000 connections. These types of agreements are usually carried out to expand the airlines in an internationally manner.
Copa has a fleet of approximately 100 aircrafts and 75 destinations, while Avianca has around 170 destinations, and more than 180 aircrafts, according to the companies.
“This agreement represents the next chapter in air travel between the United States. And Latin America.”
– Scott Kirby, president of United Airlines.
