Flying to Central America? Why not try TACA Airlines?
TACA Airlines, simply branded as TACA, is an amazing Central American airline which has recently merged with AVIANCA airlines of Colombia, but remains a distinct, separately airline in its own right. It has a clear mission to serve the expanding latin american markets, particularly providing connections between North American and South America through hubs in Central America. More recently TACA have established a very dynamic subsidiary, TACA PERU, based in Lima which served regional and domestic destinations around Peru.
Based in San Salvador, TACA is not only the national carrier of El Salvador but is also the brand name of airlines from Costa Rica (LACSA and SANZA), Guatemala (Aviateca),Honduras (islena), Nicaragua (Nicaragüense de Aviación) and most recently Peru (TACA Peru). TACA is a bright, dynamic young airline which is in the forefront of the growing tourist development of Latin America, as well as looking to serve the young urban professionals which fly from the US to Central and South America. Its modern aircraft, bright and bold colour scheme, convenient schedules with easy connections and well thought out on-board service make it a favourite choice of Alternative Airlines.
Whether you are travelling throughout the region or looking to visit any of the cities on the TACA network, or even looking to travel to one of the smaller destinations served by the TACA Regional fleet of turboprop aircraft, TACA is a great way to fly!
Who are TACA Airlines?
Probably one of Latin America's greatest aviation success stories, TACA is a complicated story to tell but an award winning service to experience. Starting at the top, it has just become part of the global airline alliance, Star - this means a standard of punctuality, on-board product and customer service that it is internationally recognised. Its is now also part of the ancient Avianca airline group (note: Avianca is the second oldest airline in the world, so they know a thing or two about how to fly aircraft and delight passengers) from a passenger perspective this means that TACA get access to both brand new aircraft (the combined group includes AeroGal of Ecuador and AviancaBrazil) which the group gets at competitive prices by pacing large orders and the ability to co-ordinate schedules so that passngers can smoothly use both TACA 's services and Avianca's on one ticket. TACA itself dominates its home markets, both on high frequency trunk routes and less popular services to secondary destinations. Now its is beginning to make an impact on new markets such as Peru whiere TACA peru is rapidly becoming the airline of choice on tourist routes such as LIma to Cusco.
This airline is the brightest star in the shining firmament which is TACA Airlines and we want more people to try this growing airline. Formed in 1999 it now operates to 18 Latin America airports from its base at Lima's Jorge Chavez International Airport. Its most revent new routes include six regional cities of Peru, including the fabulous tourist magnet of Cusco. Its expanding fleet of aircraft are mostly brand new Airbus variants but for the newer domestic services Brazilian built Embraer 190's are being added. amidst the expanding TACA airline market, TACA Peru gives its passengers the best of all world's combing the backing of the giant AVIANCATACA airline group with the local knowledge of a local Peruvian organisation.
Founded in 1931 and now flying to 39 destinations in 22 countries across North, Central and South America and the Caribbean, including daily flights to 9 major U.S. cities, as well as to Toronto, Canada. TACA unites the three Americas. Major international destinations include flights to New York, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile, Sao Paulo, Lima, Quito, Bogota, Caracas and Santo Domingo. TACA’s REGIONAL airline subsidiary business complements the Central American route network. This organisation operates about 150 flights per day with a fleet of 30 small turboprop aircraft carrying between 12 and 50 passengers per flight. On the modern Jet flights of TACA airlines most flights have a two class service with a business class cabin which is worth the extra cost ! We, at Alternative Airlines have experienced it and thoroughly recommend it, with its gourmet - but appropriate to the time of day meals, priority boarding (not so important); first out luggage delivery (VITAL - we hate the wait for luggage when we want to get on with a journey) and some pretty special VIP lounges - plus naturally more leg room, wider seats and dedicated, smiling cabin staff - its great !
