Bucaramanga to Medellin


Two of my friends are going to San Gil and are then heading to Medellin to meet me afterwards on Fri, 23 August. I know there is a direct flight from Bucaramanga with Avianca at 10am but they dont think they will make it from Barichara that morning to Bucaramanga airport without having to be up at 5.30am!

There appears to be a later flight with ADA but we cannot book it from where we live as the website will only accept a Colombian credit card for payment.

Does anyone know of later (relatively cheap) or other options?

fyi viva doesn't include Buca on their destino list.

Respectively I don't know why anyone would want to take to take a 7hr detour to Bogota; unfortunately this is a common Colombian flight routeing problem.

mm, you're research is spot on - yes your friends will need a very early Barichara wake up call to make this flight.
