Viva Air Colombia, previously VivaColombia, is a Colombian low-cost airline that primarily offers domestic flights throughout Colombia but also flies to destinations in Peru and the US. The airline has airport hubs in Bogotá (BOG), Medellin (MDE) and Santa Marta (SMR) and flies to more than 10 destinations overall.

The airline launched in 2012, initially operating with only a domestic route network. Within two years of flying, the airline flew its first set of international flights between Medellin and Bogota to Panama City. This route was eventually discontinued and replaced with international services to Lima, Peru and, the airline's first intercontinental flight, to Miami.

Viva Air Colombia initially operated under the name and branding, VivaColombia but rebranded to Via Air Colombia in 2018. The airline is owned by Irelandia Aviation, which specialises in creating low-cost airlines all across the world, including Ryanair, Allegiant Air, Tigerair, VivaAerobus and Viva Air Perú.


As of January 2020, the airline's fleet consists of more than 20 Airbus A320-200. However, it has a bulk order in place of 35 Airbus A320neo, which it plans to phase in and replace its current fleet.
