Transfer Bogota airport from Lufthansa to Avianca flight

Hi

Is is possible to transfer between Lufthansa and Avianca flight if I have checked luggage which I need to collect and re-check it in all in 1.5 hours? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks

Cutting it a little fine but should be fine if the plane is on time. You don't say where you are flying; you may have to transfer airports (which is easy to do). I assume your tickets are linked so Avianca will adjust if required.

The cities mentioned here will be from terminal 1 where you arrive.

Me permito informarle que a partir del domingo 8 de junio de 2014, estaremos operando desde el muelle nacional del Aeropuerto El Dorado (Terminal 1), las rutas que conectan a Bogotá con Barranquilla, Bucaramanga, Cali, Cartagena, Medellín, Pasto, Pereira y San Andrés. Con esta reorganización, estaremos minimizando los tiempos de desplazamiento y de conexión con vuelos internacionales operados por Avianca y otras aerolíneas desde este terminal.

The cities mentioned here go from Puente Aero where you will have to transfer terminals.

Por su parte, los vuelos entre Bogotá y Armenia, Barrancabermeja, Cúcuta, Florencia, Ibagué, Leticia, Manizales, Montería, Neiva, Popayán, Riohacha, Santa Marta, Valledupar, Villavicencio* y Yopal, seguirán operando desde el Terminal Puente Aéreo (T2). Así, los usuarios de rutas operadas desde este terminal se beneficiarán de áreas más espaciosas y mayor comodidad en los servicios de viaje en general.

Además de contar con más de 30 módulos de check-in en cada terminal, áreas de equipajes, puntos de venta e información, los viajeros frecuentes podrán disfrutar de los servicios exclusivos dispuestos en las Salas VIP de Avianca en ambos terminales. La nueva Sala VIP para viajeros nacionales de Avianca en el Aeropuerto El Dorado estará lista para atender en forma simultánea a 420 viajeros frecuentes LifeMiles Élite Silver, Gold o Diamond, socios Star Alliance Gold, socios Priority Pass y/o viajeros en Clase Ejecutiva, quienes tendrán allí a su disposición servicios de Internet, televisión, información de llegada y salida de vuelos, área para trabajo, así como zona de snacks y bebidas.

UK it's a OK

If you hold a single ticket you'll be fine as stated above.

If however you have two separate bookings you might want to amend the internal flight to later as you'll be cutting it fine to make the check-in after clearing customs / baggage claim and any delays. My Lufthansa flight last Friday was 45 mins late arriving

You or may not be changing terminals depending on your destination on Avianca. If you are changing terminals, 90 minutes is tight. I personally would leave more of a cushion regardless. Avianca has very frequent service to the major Colombian cities from Bogota.
