Star Alliance carrier Turkish Airlines offers an amazing price for roundtrips from three Italian cities to Bogotá, Colombia. Between November 2021 and June 2022, you can find tickets including two checked bags up to 23 kg for as little as €422. However, this fare requires an overnight layover in Istanbul on the outbound flight.

Info

These tickets are not refundable. For flights before March 31, 2022, Turkish Airlines waives the rebooking fee. You’d still have to pay the fare difference.

Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.

A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.

Our availability calendar shows you all dates at the lowest fare for trips up to 28 days. You can buy tickets for €422 at Turkish Airlines or slightly cheaper at online travel agencies presented by our flight search.

Because Turkish Airlines’ service to Bogotá leave early in the morning from Istanbul, an overnight layover in the Turkish capital is necessary. You can spend up to 17 hours there and explore the city. The inbound flight features a technical stop in Panama City.

Turkish Airlines uses Boeing 787-9 aircraft on the long haul flights. They feature a 3-3-3 seating in economy class, accompanied by extraordinary economy class catering and seat back entertainment for every passenger.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:

  1. The Covid-19 Pandemic
    During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.

    Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
  2. Better Customer Service
    In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

    If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.

    This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
  3. Baggage Fees
    Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
