Civil Aeronautics imposes limits on airlines

Resolution 00205 of February 9, 2024 regulates rates in emergency cases such as the one that occurred on the road to Quibdó, Chocó, and the impact on the road to Villavicencio.

Civil Aeronautics implemented new measures through Resolution 00205 of February 9, 2024, with the aim of preventing airlines from raising the prices of air tickets in situations of loss of land connectivity, as happened recently on the road that leads from Quibdó – Medellín, and as is common on the road to Villavicencio.

The regulations establish that airlines must control their fare systems in relation to the affected routes. For both itinerary flights and additional flights, the current prices of air tickets must be maintained at the same rates as the day prior to the occurrence of the events that have interrupted connectivity.

According to the regulation, airlines must offer approved air routes and will not be able to increase the prices of their tickets during the time the emergency condition lasts.

In the case of companies that were not previously operating the affected route but that, in application of these provisions, carry out charter flights on them, their rates may not be higher than those of the companies that operate the route. If no company previously operated the route, the rates proposed by the new companies must be approved by the aeronautical authority and will not be higher than those existing for similar routes.

“If there is no company previously operating the route, the rates proposed by the incoming companies must be approved by the aeronautical authority and in any case, they will not be higher than those existing for other routes similar in length, duration of the flights and type of flight. aircraft used, as applicable, said the aviation control entity.

However, Aerocivil indicated that, if as a consequence of the situation of loss of land connectivity, additional circumstances arise that imply direct increases in operating costs for commercial air services companies of public passenger transportation on the affected routes, The corresponding rates may be increased in the same proportion. This will be subject to a justified request before the Directorate of Air Transport and Aerocommercial Affairs, and during the period of validity of the previous regulations.

During the application of these special measures, the companies that provide the service on the affected route must report daily to the aeronautical authority about the rates applied and the number of passengers transported.

Control of the fare systems will be maintained by the airlines during the situation of loss of ground connectivity, until information is received about the deactivation of the contingency procedure. Even when the connection is reestablished, airlines will have to respect the rates for tickets sold prior to deactivation.

In addition, the aeronautical authority will carry out weekly monitoring of the evolution of rates for air services to/from the affected places or regions, intervening if necessary.
