Colombia’s Avianca braces for strike and suspends ticket sales
Passengers on Colombia’s flagship airline, Avianca, will face delays and cancellations as of Wednesday when some 730 pilots walk off the job. In preparation for the week-long strike by the Colombian Association of Civil Aviators union, the airline announced it would suspend all ticket sales to destinations within and outside of Colombia for September 20, 21 and 22.
“This measure is intended to mitigate potential damages,” said the airline on Monday.
