Say hello to the brand-new Avianca Virtual Group!

Since our revamp beginning last December, we’ve introduced a whole ton of new features!


  • New Website and Integrated Crew Center

Our brand new website was built from scratch. After several trials and errors, we are proud to unveil a brand new website and crew center, featuring a pilot lounge with built in weather and flight planning tools!

  • Fully integrated subsidiaries and new routes database

With Avianca’s 8 new subsidiaries, we’re proud to announce that we’ve been able to massively expand our route network. We fly every single route in the Avianca route network, and there’s no shortage of flying here.

  • Statuses

We decided to create a status feature for our pilots. Accessible after the rank of Commander, you have three statuses to achieve:

Silver: Unlocked by flying at least one route from every mainline, subsidiary, and codeshare fleets.

Gold: Unlocked by flying every mainline destination, including programs.

Diamond: Unlocked by flying to all 94 countries in the AVVA route network.

  • Programs

We’ve introduced our two long-awaited (and asked about) programs.

A Pushback to the Past

This is our historical division. It’s all about flying to Avianca’s terminated destinations and flying two of our retro aircraft, the A318 and the 747-200.

Avianca Executive

With the TBM-930 and Citation X, you can fly to any airport on the planet with one stop.


Hi, y’all! I’m @Altaria55, the Founder and CEO of Avianca Virtual Group. It is my absolute honor to be running AVVA. Whether you’re brand new to an experienced veteran in the VA game, I’ll do nothing short of my best to make you feel right at home in AVVA.

Sincerely,

AVVA CEO @Altaria55

AVVA was founded on March 5th, 2019 by the founder and current CEO, @Altaria55. It took many hard months of work, and through the ups and downs, we abided by one principle: perfection. If it isn’t perfect, it wasn’t good enough. On August 20th, 2019, we were IFVARB certified, and on September 3rd, 2019, we opened our doors for operation.

AVVA would like to give a huge thank you to @mwe2187 for his fantastic work and helping us through each step.
