Avianca will begin nonstop service from Bogota to Munich on 16 November, FlightGlobal schedules data show.

The Star Alliance carrier will operate five-times weekly on the route with Boeing 787-8 aircraft, according to the data.

Avianca did not immediately respond to requests for comment. However, the airline has long indicated its interest in adding new European points, including Munich.

Munich will be Avianca's fourth point in Europe, and gives the airline an opportunity to connect with partner Lufthansa which has a hub at the German airport.

Avianca currently operates to Barcelona, London Heathrow and Madrid in Europe. It will be the only airline flying nonstop between Bogota and Munich, FlightGlobal schedules data show.
