To book this combination, you need to book these flights as a multi-city ticket. The first segment is to Bogotá, and the second segment is from Cartagena de Indias. You can also do it the other way around, but you will have a technical stop in both directions. That’s why we recommend starting in Bogotá and ending in Cartagena de Indias:
With this deal, you will take your feeder flight from Amsterdam to Zurich and then fly in the Edelweiss Airbus 340 business class with lie-flat seats in a 2-2-2 configuration.
Search & Book
You can use Google Flights (instructions) for finding available dates quickly and easily. The flights can be booked directly on SWISS‘s website, but you can also find them on OTAs for less money than on the airline’s website. However, these savings will come with some downsides, as we explain here:
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.
The flights are issued with Edelweiss Air with booking class P. Here are the miles or points you will earn if you book this deal from Amsterdam to Bogotá:
