An Avianca Airbus A319-100, registration N723AV performing flight AV-241 from Bogota (Colombia) to Santiago (Chile) with 118 people on board, was departing Bogota's runway 13R when the left hand engine (CFM56) ingested a number of birds prompting the crew to stop the climb at 18,000 feet, burn off fuel and return to Bogota for a safe landing on runway 13L about 3:05 hours after departure.

Passengers reported there was a loud noise from the left hand engine just prior to rotation, the aircraft rotated and became airborne, climbed out but then began to circle and returned. Announcements from the cockpit did not explain what had happened.

The airline reported the aircraft suffered a bird strike into one of the engines, burned off fuel and returned to Bogota as result.

A replacement A319-100 registration N740AV reached Santiago with a delay of 6 hours.
