The return of operations will be based on three criteria, according to the Colombian government: identification of countries that have already reopened for international tourism; airport capacity to comply with the protocols; and the commercial interest of airlines.

Colombia began easing some restrictions on September 1, after six months of confinement. Bogotá's El Dorado Airport recently opened its doors to domestic passengers.

Authorities say the country is past the peak of the coronavirus, but a national health emergency remains in effect until November 1. Bogotá introduced a four-day plan to minimize contact between citizens, allowing some businesses and workplaces to operate on four-day cycles within a week. Under the plan, the restaurants are open Thursday through Sunday and will operate at 25% capacity, while people can shop for non-essential products between Wednesday and Sunday.
