Avianca Holdings Responds to Court’s Ruling against Kingsland

New York State Supreme Court stays all discovery pending review of
Avianca’s motion to dismiss Kingsland’s lawsuit

Avianca pleased with ruling

Avianca’s strategic negotiations with United Airlines are ongoing

NEW YORK & BOGOTA, Colombia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today the Hon. Anil C. Singh stayed all discovery in Kingsland Holdings
Ltd.’s lawsuit attempting to prevent Avianca Holdings S.A.’s strategic
alliance with United Airlines.

In doing so, the Court rejected Kingsland’s request for expedited
discovery, which Avianca believes was intended solely to derail the
Company’s negotiations with United. Avianca continues to explore an
alliance with United, a critical component of the Company’s strategy to
become the leading Latin American airline.

Avianca is pleased with today’s outcome and looks forward to the Court’s
consideration of its motion to dismiss Kingsland’s lawsuit. Avianca
believes the lawsuit is entirely baseless and without merit.
