Here you have them. Avianca used to have a couple of them in the past.





About future projects, it seems Avianca is interested in purchasing Boeing´s Dreamliner within the following years after its release.

The 747 is probably too big a plane for Avianca. Most latin american airlines got rid of their 747s and replaced them with smaller planes which are more economical to run. Still the Avianca livery looks stunning on the 747, I wish they had them today!

HISTORY

1. A history with wings is born

The first commercial airline to be founded in the American continent, and the second one in the world

The ingenuity and adventurous spirit of the Germans Werner Kaemerer, Stuart Hosie and Alberto Tietjen, and Colombians Ernesto Cortizzos (the first President of the airline) Rafael Palacio, Cristóbal Restrepo, Jacobo Correa and Aristides Noguera, gave rise to the creation of the Sociedad Colombo-Alemana de Transporte Aéreo, SCADTA (Colombian-German Society for Air Transportation), on December 5th, 1919, in Barranquilla (Colombia).


Avianca as SCADTA

1.1. Since the first flight

The Colombian-German Society for Air Transportation – SCADTA, performed its first flight between Barranquilla and the nearby town of Puerto Colombia, aboard a Junker F-13, which also carried 57 letters. The flight was conducted by German pilot Helmuth Von Krohn.


Junker F.13

This Junker F-13 and another one of the same type made up the first fleet of the airline: they were low-winged monoplanes, completely metallic, and their engines had to be modified to operate efficiently under the weather conditions of Colombia. They were 9.50 meters long and 3.5 meters high. Their flying capacity was 850 kilometers, and they could carry up to four passengers, besides the two members of the crew.

Due to the topography of the country, the Junkers were fitted with two floats which allowed them to land on the rivers, near the different towns. Thus, on October 20th, 1919, following the course of the Magdalena river, Helmuth Von Krohn carried out the first flight to central Colombia. It took eight hours, including four emergency landings.

Sharing the same vision as the founding group, Peter Von Bauer, a German scientist and philantropist, got interested in SCADTA, and he provided his knowledge and funds, as well as another plane to the Company. He also managed to get from the Government, a concession for SCADTA to take on the transportation of the country’s mail, which gave it its final push for take off.

1.2. From Colombia to the world, via SCADTA

By the mid 20s, after many natural drawbacks had been overcome, SCADTA opened the international routes, which initially covered destinations in Venezuela and the United States.

Unfortunately, in the same decade, more precisely in 1924, the plane carrying Ernesto Cortizzos and Von Krohn, among others, crashed in the area which is known today as Bocas de Ceniza, which resulted in the death of its occupants.

Due to the situation arising from World War II, Mr. Von Bauer, a Colombian-German citizen, had to sell his SCADTA shares to Pan American, the American airline.


Pan American World Airways

The first plane tickets for SCADTA cost:

• From Bogota to Barranquilla $75.OO.
• From Bogota to Cartagena $85.oo.
• From Bogota to Cartago $35.oo.
• From Bogota to Cali $ 50.oo.

2. The airline of Colombia is constituted

2.1. Avianca

On June 14th 1940, in Barranquilla, in the presence of a public notary, the deed for the creation of the Compañía Aerovías Nacionales de Colombia S.A., Avianca was signed, thanks to the merger between SCADTA, already in American hands, and SACO, Servicio Aéreo Colombiano (Colombian Air Service).


Avianca's first logo

The Colombians Rafael María Palacio, Jacobo A. Correa, Cristóbal Restrepo, Aristides Noguera and Ernesto Cortissoz took part in it, as well as German citizens Alberto Teitjen, Werner Kaemerer and Stuart Hosie. At the time, Mr. Martín del Corral was appointed first President of Avianca.

2.2. Decades of memorable milestones: The first 70 years

Since its creation, first as SCADTA and then as Avianca, the airline has contributed to the construction and development of Colombia through actions among which we can mention:

• September 1920: With Fritz Hammer as a pilot, Wilhem Schnurrbush as a copilot, and Stuart Hosie as a passenger, SCADTA performed the first flight between Barranquilla and Puerto Berrío.

• October 19th 1920: Helmuth Von Krohn carried out the first flight between Barranquilla and Girardot.

• 1921: The routes between the cities of Barranquilla, Girardot and Neiva were opened.

• 1922: The air mail service started to be offered.

• August 1922: General Pedro Nel Ospina, the President of Colombia at the time, traveled on a SCADTA plane for the first time on an official mission.

• July 19th 1923: In order to save the country from bankruptcy, SCADTA took a gold and paper money cargo from Puerto Berrio to Girardot.

• July 12th 1928: a SCADTA Junker F-13, flown by pilot Herbert Boy, crossed the line of the equator.

• July 23rd 1929: regular routes were set up between Girardot and Bogota.

- July 16th 1931: SCADTA opened the first mail service between Bogota and New York.

• 1937: The airline bought 10 twin-motor Boeings 247 and thanks to them expanded the number of domestic destinations.

• October 1939: The airline purchased the first DC3 planes, which could fly at the amazing speed, for that time, of 200 miles per hour.


Douglas DC-3

• 1946: Quito, Lima and Panama, and then Miami, New York and Europe were the routes which Avianca started operating on DC4 and C54.


Douglas DC-4


Douglas C-54 Skymaster

• 1951: Avianca bought the planes Lockeed Constellation 0749 and the Super Constellation 1049L, the fastest ones at the time.

• 1981: The possibilities for ground service for passengers in Bogota multiplied, thanks to the modern air terminal opened by Avianca. “Puente Aereo” Terminal, of Avianca, initially served the routes for Miami, New York, Cali, Medellin, Pasto and Monteria.

• 1990: Avianca purchased two of the most modern planes in the world: Boeing 767 - 200 ER, which were given the names Cristóbal Colón (Christopher Columbus) and Americo Vespucio.

3. The recent years: Growth, expansion, alliances

3.1. Avianca – Sam – Helicol, the Avianca system


Avianca System

In 1994, a strategic alliance joining the three most important companies in the aviation sector was created: Avianca, SAM (Sociedad Aeronáutica de Medellín) and HELICOL (Helicópteros Nacionales de Colombia) got together to give life to the Avianca System.

The Avianca System offered specialized services in the areas of Cargo (Avianca Carga) and mail (Servicios Postales, later on under the trademark Deprisa), as well as the most modern fleet in Latin America, consisting of:


Desprisa

• Boeing 767 - 200
• Boeing 767 - 300
• Boeing757 - 200
• McDonell Douglas MD - 83
• Fokker - 50
• Bell Helicopters

The Avianca System covered Colombia and the world, including the following destinations:

• Within Colombia: Bogota, Arauca, Armenia, Cali, Medellin, Barranquilla, Bucaramanga, Cartagena, Cucuta, Santa Marta, Leticia, Manizales, Montería, Pasto, Pereira, Popayan, Riohacha, San Andres Island, Valledupar, Providencia, Capurgana, Bahia Solano, Nuqui, Caucasia and Chigorodo.

• In South America: Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Lima, Quito, Guayaquil, Caracas.

• In the United States: Los Angeles, New York and Miami.

• In Europe: Madrid, Paris, Frankfurt and London.

• In Central America and The Caribbean Region: Mexico, Panama, San Jose de Costa Rica, Curazao and Aruba.

3.2. A hub for Avianca connections in Bogota

On December 10th 1998, Avianca opened its Hub in Bogota, to serve passengers in Colombia and the world. It is the best and more functional combination of airline operations, which allows travelers to access near 6,000 weekly possible connections, and greater number of frequencies, schedules and destinations served, thus profiting from the privileged geographical location of Colombia’s capital in order to benefit the country as well as the travelers.

3.3. Avianca, Sam and Aces: Alianza Summa


Summa Alliance

On May 20th 2002, after a careful and complex process whose aim was to overcome the crisis in the airline industry resulting from the terrorist attacks of September 11th 2001, Avianca and Sam, together with Aces (Aerolíneas Centrales de Colombia) joined forces to create “Alianza Summa”. These airlines decided to strategically get together to offer a superior service: safety&security, reliability, punctuality, more efficiency, and more competitive prices.

However, adverse circumstances in the industry and markets, and despite getting excellent result from this union, in November 2003 the shareholders decided to start liquidating Sociedad Alianza Summa and to concentrate their efforts to strengthen the Avianca trademark.

Financial strengthening

An important part of this phase was constituted by the Chapter 11 (C-11) process, to which Avianca and its branch in the United States filed on March 21st 2003, in order to get legal protection while operation of the company became viable and cost reduction was gained.

The C-11, measure to which airlines such as Continental Airlines, US Air and United Airlines have filed, was designed by the United States law to facilitate restructuring of companies and assure their financial solidity in the long term, granting that in the meanwhile they can normally operate their business. The company presents a plan of financial reorganization to the Court, under its assistance and supervision. With this procedure, the companies that file to this protection have the right to renegotiate or end any contract they have at the United States, to start their restructuring, reduce costs and get operational strength.

The decision was taken, the same as many companies of world airline sector did, due to the economy recession in the whole planet, the demand drop after 9/11, the increase of fuel prices, the beginning of the war in the Middle East, the stagnation of the United States economy and the dramatic increment of insurance premiums. Added to this, it occurred an important devaluation in Colombia during last 12 months (28%); it made worse the panorama of fuel cost (that was increased in 58%, in dollars). On the other hand, Venezuela’s and South Cone’s crisis and Colombia’s difficult situation with public order and terrorist attacks also affected the demand of airline tickets.

Under protection of the United States norms for Economy Restructuring, Avianca was able to execute its “Flight Plan for Transformation” with which its network of routes was redesigned, focused on the most profitable markets; the fleet was renegotiated and simplified; processes were speeded up; a rigorous program for cost reduction was implemented; the team were optimized, and improvements to productivity were negotiated with several of its labor union communities.

While being restructured, the Company increased its services around the world with the signature of commercial and Code Sharing agreements with airlines of great international influence such as Iberia, Delta Air Lines and Lacsa, of the Grupo Taca. On that line of updating and modernization, the Company placed ahead innovation and activation of the travel processes when starting the first transactional web site in Colombia, which offers on-line reservations, e-ticket purchase and e-check-in.

On December 10th 2004, after carrying out all requirements of the Southern District of New York Court, specified in the Investment Agreement with Sinergy Group / OceanAir, Avianca and Avianca Inc. came out of Chapter 11. Thanks to the C-11 process, Avianca achieved financial strengthening which made possible protection of the labor debts and payment to 1,200 suppliers. Also, it was possible to honor the debts with State offices such as DIAN (taxes office), Seguro Social (public health office) and Aerocivil (Colombian Civil Aviation Authority). Likewise, the Company continues honoring the debt with CAXDAC, according to Law.

As a result of this process, the Company got the best indicators in operative and net profitability of its recent history.

3.4. The consolidation process

Experience and commitment

In December 2004, Avianca celebrated its 85th birthday with nonstop operations. That is, more than eight decades in which the Colombian airline has contributed to Colombia’s development, and has taken the Colombian flag across the skies of the world.

Thanks to its rigorous technical and operational procedures, Avianca boasts the most important international certifications, which endorse the quality of its procedures and standards for Safety, in its maintenance, training and aeronautical assistance services.

With a team constituted by more than 5,000 direct Collaborators, and a fleet consisting of Boeing B-767, Boeing B-757, McDonell Douglas MD-83 and Fokker F-50, Avianca flies to gain the loyalty of its team, customers, shareholders and the community.

Under its philosophy of Safe&Secure, on-time and warm service, it operates to 18 destinations in Colombia and 17 in America and Europe. From its hub in Bogota, it offers an average of 220 daily flights to different destinations inside the Country and abroad.

Avianca’s passengers have more than 6,000 possibilities for connections between destinations operated directly or through code-sharing agreements with other world-class airlines: Delta Air Lines, Mexicana, Lacsa (Grupo Taca), Iberia and Air Canada.

Besides services for passenger transportation Avianca offers, through its Deskubra, Deprisa and Avianca Services Business Units, a complete tourist services portfolio, as well as mail transport, cargo, courier and aeronautical attendance.

4. A world-class airline

4.1. Avianca reveals its new image: The pride of Colombia flying around the world


Avianca's current logo

On February 28th 2005, after a detailed and meticulous work of art and science was completed, Avianca introduced its new image. It preserves its symbolic emblems, renewed under the inspiration of the values and attributes of a country and a brand like Avianca’s, committed to provide a safe&secure, warm, on-time and flexible service.

In honor of the women, the men, and the land that have given it life along these 85 years, Avianca’s new identity intertwines the colors of the country with the emblematic condor, which has returned in this new phase, renewed, reflecting the trail of its flight across the skies.

With its new image, Avianca starts a new chapter in the history of its corporate development, aiming at promoting its position as a communication channel with all the Spanish speaking passengers, who day after day show their preference for our services when arriving in or leaving the main capital cities in America and Europe.

Avianca nears major fleet buy, plans service to Africa
Friday December 1, 2006

Avianca Chairman German Efromovich said the company is in the final stages of negotiating a "big" fleet purchase expected to be completed before the end of January. Speaking at ALTA's third annual Latin American Airlines Leaders Forum in Cancun, Efromovich, who also is CEO of Brazil's Synergy Group, said the value of the order excluding options is in the area of $2.5 billion and comprises single- and twin-aisle aircraft. They will be divided between Avianca and OceanAir of Brazil, which both are under the Synergy Aerospace umbrella.

He said he was talking to Airbus and Boeing. Although he declined to identify specific widebody types, he did say the 777 was too large for the airlines' requirements and joked that the A380 likewise was too big. "I can work with the 787," he added in response to a reporter's question. The goal is to replace the entire fleet of the carriers by 2014 with the exception of the F100s that are spread among the airlines. Another Synergy airline, VIP of Ecuador, flies four Do-328s.

Efromovich also said OceanAir has acquired two 767-300ERs, one leased and one purchased, that will allow it to launch service to Africa in the 2007 first quarter. Aircraft will operate over a Sao Paulo-Lagos-Luanda-Sao Paulo routing. Although service will be started under the OceanAir brand, his intent is to brand all of the group's airlines under the Avianca name, although not all names will disappear because some are involved in nonairline aviation activities. OceanAir also has the authority to fly to Johannesburg and likely will begin the route after it acquires a third 767, he said.
