Proexport Colombia, the government agency for the promotion of tourism, trade and investment, is delighted to announce Avianca will be offering direct flights from London Heathrow to Colombia’s capital Bogota. This service will commence from the June 27th and will operate four times a week on Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Colombia has increased the number of cruise ships arriving in the country threefold in the last six years according to new figures from the ministry of commerce, industry and tourism. In 2006 there were 53 landfalls recorded in the Latin American country’s ports, snowballing to 166 in 2012.
Marriott International plans to open the first Courtyard by Marriott brand hotel in Bogota, Colombia. Opening in April 2014, the 146-room Courtyard hotel on Avenida El Dorado will be part of a mixed-use complex which will include prime office and retail space.
When it was time for Proexport, the official tourism promotion organization for Colombia, to launch its new Internet portal, Colombia.travel, it logically saw the inherent impact that .travel would have as a marketing tool for the world tourism industry.
