There are various ways to travel from Amsterdam to Bolivia. One route involves taking Swiss to Amsterdam and Edelweiss to Bogotá, using an Airbus A340-300 aircraft. In the business class, you will find a 1-2-1 or 2-2-1 configuration.

After landing in Colombia, there will be a connecting flight with Avianca. For example, you may travel to your destination, Santa Cruz or La Paz with an Avianca Airbus 320.

On the return flight, you might travel from La Paz with Avianca to Bogotá. From there, you transfer to an Edelweiss flight. This flight makes a short layover in Cartagena. During this time, you probably won’t need to disembark because the flight continues with the same flight number toward Zurich. Finally, the last segment (Zurich-Amsterdam) is operated by Swiss.

It is also possible to fly with Lufthansa in the outbound flight for an extra €100, but you will get fewer miles than with Swiss but more than with Edelweiss.

Often, the connecting flight within Latin America is only in economy (sometimes premium economy) class. This is marked in the booking process with the indication “Mixed Travel Classes.”

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 two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline 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 information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to 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.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. 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.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.


All long-haul flights, both Edelweiss and Swiss, are issued in booking class P. The flights with Avianca in booking class H.
