Bogota.- Avianca Airlines has fully recovered its operation in Colombia, halved its most critical damage from a 51-day strike that made its pilots between September and November 2017, the company's executive director announced on Tuesday.

The airline currently has a 1.280 pilot plant that operates approximately 500 daily flights with 100 aircraft on domestic and international routes from Colombia.

"A hundred percent of operations on the Colombian domestic market have been restored," Daniel Fajardo, director of networking and fleet planning for Avianca Holdings, told a news conference. He announced that for Christmas and New Year's New 39,000 additional places will be offered on flights within Colombia.

The cessation of activities, declared illegal by the High Court, forced the airline to leave several of its aircraft on the ground that affect thousands of passengers.

Although the strike was over, more than 80 pilots were dismissed on the basis of the declaration of the illegality of the strike, while 15 others resigned or left retirees.

The airline had to begin the process of incorporation and training in order to stabilize its factory and fill out vacancies of more than 100 pilots and operate the fleet to cover the operation in Colombia.

Avianca Holdings, which has transported 29.4 million passengers in 2017, has more than 21,000 employees and covers more than 100 destinations in 28 countries in America and Europe with 190 aircraft.
