Avianca employs 21,000 people directly across Latin America, including more than 14,000 in Colombia, where it serves as the country’s national carrier.
There was also a bankruptcy problem in the 2000’s
According to the company, such an adverse situation has never been created in the last 100 years. Earlier, Avianca was reeling under the problem of bankruptcy in the early 2000s.
