Are they trying to do in Venezuela what they unsuccesfully tried in Peru with TACA PERU?
It was very strange that Taca's adventure in Peru stopped pretty much when Fujimori left, and that it's Venezuelan start-up sees the day as Chavez gets "re-elected" for another "few years"...
Nonetheless Taca is a company that I support since it succesfully broke the American supremacy in C.A.
My opinion is that they really need a couple of A330s for their LAX and JFK routes. The A320s are very limited on such long flights out of Comalapa, meaning a lot of pax-restrictions on those demanded destinations.
Good news anyway.
Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...

Grupo Taca serves Santiago de Chile and Buenos Aires in the Southern Cone. Also Sao Paulo BTW.
It's hard to say what "kind of Taca" does it, as they swap planes and crew wherever needed.
Also hard to judge when regarding the route licenses, some of the routes may be operated on the license of the former Lacsa that flew for instance Santiago-Lima before the creation of Grupo Taca. Or perhaps Taca Peru filed for the rights of all the routes out of Lima, could be. ?
I think the best bet is referring to Grupo Taca as a whole.

I understand the interchangeability of TACA aircraft and crew, but what I wanted to know is if the Southern Cone is served from San Jose and/or San Salvador, or just Lima? I know LACSA had the route license SJO-EZE. Do TA use it?

ZXV: SCL is served directly from Costa Rica, with a stop in LIM. There is no a/c change or conexion to make, just a stop in LIM. As posted above, this is heritage from Lacsa service to SCL, that begun at the same time UC started to fly to San Jose... those golden years...
