TACA merged into Avianca in 2013, however, before this, it was considered the second oldest continuously operating airline brand in Central America behind Cubana de Aviación.

TACA was made up of seven different airlines that all operated from Central America and South America. These airlines were TACA International Airlines, Aviateca, Regional, Lacsa, Isleńa Airlines, TACA Peru and TACA Regional.
