The Colombian civil aeronautics has given its approval for the launch of an ultra-low-cost airline with multiple destinations. That will offer a new alternative to recurring passengers and attracting a large part of the population that previously could not access services.
The first reason why Ultra Air is considered an Ultra Low-Cost airline is because of the aircraft they will use, and the airline has closed negotiations with Airbus to incorporate 40 A320ceo and A320neo aircraft into the fleet, which stands out for having 20% in saving fuel and CO2 emissions, which in itself lowers operating costs.
To this is added the fact that passengers will pay depending on the load they carry and the services they require from the airline. That is, the cost of the ticket will be the same for everyone and includes a bag or backpack and will be paid for extra luggage or additional suitcase. In addition, the possibility of choosing your chair, space, among other services.
According to statements from the airline, it is estimated that in the first five years 40 aircraft will be incorporated into the fleet and that approximately 36,000 direct and indirect jobs may be generated. It is also expected that with the entry of this new airline into the market, airfares will decrease by 20%, which would translate into growth in the tourism sector in the coming years.
Ultra Air has advanced by leaps and bounds, and it is expected that soon there will be orange planes flying through the skies and operating not only commercial flights but also cargo and mail.
For now the Ultra Air airline is expected to cover the routes between the most important cities in Colombia and some international ones such as Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Aruba, Curaçao, and the United States.
