Event

Avianca Brasil announced it would cancel 50 previously scheduled flights per day beginning Monday, April 15, following a judicial order in an ongoing bankruptcy case. On Friday, April 12, a federal judge approved the repossession of nine planes leased by Avianca, prompting the company to begin cancelations of flights. Further flight cancelations and adjustments and resultant congestion are possible in the coming days and weeks.

Context

Avianca Brasil filed for bankruptcy protection four months ago and had appealed to keep possession of planes on credit. The airline previously operated 35 planes. A second lender is already in the process of repossessing nine other planes.

Advice

Individuals flying Avianca Brasil are advised to confirm their flight status with the airline, make alternate travel plans if necessary, and anticipate further flight cancelations and congestion on operating flights.
