the service at the counter and on board was excellent. they allow at no cost one checked piece of luggage. for a short one hour flight, they offered a hot sándwich and berverages. the plan very modern, individual monitora with a wide variety of óptions. last week i flew latam on a two hours flight that felt worse than a bus trip. this is my second flight on avianca Brazil and the same great service. best option for domestic flights within Brazil and internacional flights as well. RECOMMENDED

modern plane, friendly service both at the airport and aboard

The seats were very comfortable with a fresh package of pillow/blanket and earphones waiting for us. A free meal, and snack. The take-off and landing were timely.

The bathroom was the worst I have ever seen. Old urine splattered on the seat (it had to have been left uncleaned from an earlier flight). There was no soap, The floor as still wet from urine and tp was still there. I was disguisted. Also there were only one bathroom in the back of the plane, which must have been a way to get more available seats. If other airplanes take that tactic, I'll stop flying altogether.

My flight was scheduled to take off at 20:50. I arrived at Avianca counter at 20:20 and they said check in was closed and told me to buy a new ticket for a flight on the following day, for which I had to pay 500 brazilian reales. I could not get to the airport earlier because traffic, the day was rainy and the bus took an extra hour than normally to get to the airport. They should be more flexible with their check in. Today I asked an Avianca officer what was their closing time for check in and he said 30 minutes before departure. Last night I was at the Avianca counter 30 minutes before departure and they did not want to process my check in. I do not think to travel again with Avianca.

It was fine, on time. I didn't have a checked bag or I would have waited in line at check-in for at least 30-45 minutes. Online check-in was relatively easy and digital boarding pass was convenient.

Seats are small, if you need to check a bag it will take forever. The underseat area is much.smaller than other airlines. The flight was very delayed because of some discrepancy regarding the number of passengers. Nothing seemed to be wrong but it took forever!

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
