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.

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.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
