With more than 300 flights and up to 100 weekly frequencies, Avianca Cargo managed to transport more than 16 thousand tons mainly to the United States during St. Valentine’s 2022 season. This year, the company exceeded 15% of the tons transported compared to the previous year, breaking the record for the second consecutive year as the biggest flower transport operation.

For 2022, we created a robust strategy to strengthen our operation to provide high-quality service.
