Vargas also confirmed that the airline will open a route to New York with stops in El Salvador in March.

In addition, the San Jose-Guatemala-San Jose route, operated by Lacsa on an Airbus, will now be flown by AVIATECA.

The flight details for these changes have not been officially confirmed by Avianca. (ADN)
