Viva Air receives post COVID-19 biosafety approval from Colombian government


Colombian low-cost airline Viva Air has become the first airline to receive the “Check in Certificado” safety certificate developed by the Colombian Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism and issued by the Colombian Institute of Standards techniques and certification, ICONTEC. The certification is a biosecurity approval demonstrating that the airline complies with standards and protocols developed by authorities and experts for travel during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, and designed to minimize the risk of COVID-19 contagion.

“We are celebrating that Viva Air is the first airline to achieve the ‘Certified Check-in Certificate’ tourism biosecurity seal, which aims to boost the confidence of travelers and consumers in the face of the industry’s recovery. We invite other airlines to follow their example. We will continue to work hand in hand with the tourism and air transport sectors on the reactivation strategy, ”said Deputy Tourism Minister Julián Guerrero Orozco.

In addition to the “Check in Certificado” designation, ICONTEC has awarded Viva Air its “Certification of Biosafety Operations”. During travel restrictions linked to the COVID-19 pandemic that closed Colombian airspace to scheduled domestic and international passenger traffic, Viva has made more than 260 humanitarian and repatriation flights nationally and across America Latin, the Caribbean and the United States.

“We are proud to be the pioneering airline in the country in obtaining this seal where we certify compliance with our biosecurity protocols. At Viva we have strengthened these protocols and we make sure to take care of our passengers to encourage travel and regain confidence in flying. Thus, we endorse ourselves as a safe and reliable airline to fly, 100% adhering to biosecurity protocols. It shows our commitment to take care of you and take care of ourselves, ”says Félix Antelo, CEO and President of the Viva Air Group.
