Your options for traveling to Colombia, as well as within Colombia, became vastly more varied and economical recently. Colombia, and South America in general, is a very lucrative market for airlines, with passenger traffic growing dramatically even during the world economic crisis. Discount airlines have also entered this arena, filling a void and actually increasing demand further for a large segment of the population that couldn’t afford typically high fares. While Bogota used to be the air travel hub in Colombia, there’s more and more flights on offer that will take you to and from other Colombian cities without connecting at El Dorado, the capital’s international airport.
