Avianca Brasil announced it would cancel 1045 previously scheduled domestic flights from Monday, April 22, following a judicial order in an ongoing bankruptcy case. The National Aviation Agency requested the repossession of 18 planes leased by Avianca, prompting the persistent cancelations of flights. The company announced that customers can either get refunds for canceled flights or rebook through partner airlines. Further flight cancelations and adjustments and resultant congestion are possible in the coming days and weeks.
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.
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.
