Avianca Holdings is planning to commence fleet delivery renegotiation with Airbus, with its fleet plans including receiving 50 aircraft, rather than the 100 aircraft in previous fleet plan (Reuters, 11-Dec-2018). Avianca will hold meetings with Airbus in Dec-2018, seeking to reduce its 100 aircraft order to between 50 and 80 aircraft. Avianca Holdings CEO Hernan Rincon stated: "We don't have any doubt that we will keep growing, what has changed is the rhythm of the growth".
