What is the Avianca UATP Card?

The UATP Card is a new product we have created to replace the Avianca Voucher. It is a virtual card pre-loaded with the value of the unused ticket. When you have a setback and cannot fly, when you cancel your reservation(following the cancellation policies) the value of the ticket will be refunded to the UATP card and you can use it just as you would with a debit card, to buy any of our products or services.

Who will receive the UATP card?

  • Customers who could not use their ticket / Avianca Voucher during the COVID-19 period (tickets issued before August 31, 2020 with flight dates from March 4, 2020 to October 31, 2020).
  • All customers requesting reimbursement of tickets issued in Colombia during the state of a health emergency. For tickets issued before August 31, 2020 with travel dates between March 4, 2020 and October 31, 2020, the amount of the ticket not flown will be credited, while the amount to be credited for tickets outside that period will be subject to the corresponding fare rules. The Avianca-UATP Card resulting from tickets issued in Colombia will be valid for redemption until June 30, 2023.
