Colombian air traffic surges to double-digit growth
Monday, March 18, 2013
Colombia recorded 15 percent growth in domestic passenger traffic in 2012 and should see more double-digit growth in 2013 driven partially by expansion at low-cost start-up VivaColombia.
There were 18.85 million domestic passengers in Colombia in 2012, a 14.7 percent increase compared to 2011 levels, according to official figures.
Colombia is Latin America’s third largest domestic market after Brazil and Mexico and the 19th largest in the world based on current seat capacity.
