TACA get soon it's first Embraer jet.

On the Brazilian homepage "Aero World News" are two pictures of the first Emb190 of TACA.

http://www.aeroworldnews.com.br/galeria.php?inicio=952&codgrupo=2 (no direct link to the picture, sorry).

I'm very surprised about that.

I'm also very surprised. Does anyone know when that DL ERJ170 will be on its deliveryflight and how it will fly to its final destination? Maybe via CUR?

I here ya bro. It was a sad back in the late 90s when TA dropped this stunning livery for the bland, lifeless design they now use. Perhaps we should mount a campaign to maybe persuade TA officials to bring back that 80s livery or a variation thereof.

Thanks Viasa, I saw it later on yes. Do you know how these DL ERJ175s are being delivered (via which airports)?

The picture you posted is of the first ERJ190 for TACA, not the DL ERJ175.

The former TA changed its original livery when the Central American airline merger occurred during the 90s: TACA [El Salvador], NICA [NIcaragua], AVIATECA [Guatemala] and LACSA [Costa Rica],

Since the accident of the EI-TAF in Tegucigalpa on May 30th, they are received two brand new 320s:

A320-233.........Registered at: N499TA........Delivery date: June 06th 2008.
A320-233.........Registered at: N680TA........Delivery date: July 04th 2008.

I checked in other sources that both aircrafts have been painted in its current colour-scheme as they are operating into commercial service nowadays.
Probably, either the N681TA or the N682TA is the plane that you were referring for. They haven't yet delivered as I ignore their current status.

Was delivered 15th aug 2008 on the route TLS-KEF-YYZ-SAL. This plane is in all white and will be the first A320 in the new color of TACA.

According to the attached press release in Spanish and edited in El Salvador, TA will take delivery of its first new brand E90 on August 29th.
The first stage involves SJO, PTY and HAV as regular destinations with E90.

How will these TA ERJ190s be flown to their homebase from the Embraer factory/delivery center in Brazil?

Can we also see charter flights to CUR from SJO or PTY with these ERJ190s? That would be great! We usually have charter flights between CUR and SJO in October and sometimes in the summer too. At one point we had at least one flight operated by TA a few years ago.

All their operations are based at either LIM, SJO or SAL. That being said, charter flights out of PTY on TA are barely viable.
The only intended charter service in short-term for such area should be rather linking San Jose, Costa Rica - Paramaribo, Suriname in order to attend the qualifying soccer match for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. They will likely utilize Airbus equipment and it'll take place in October 2008.

Further information for such plane:
Type: Embraer 190 IGW.
Serial number: 205.
Test registration: PT-SGO.
Final registration: EI-BCF.
First flight date: Unknown.

Lets get something clear: Everything regarding TA's MX, Sales and Training happens in El Salvador, no painting or repainting happens in other countries where TACA operates, only at their homebase in SAL.

They are building their new simulator facilities right next to AEROMAN, don't know when they'll be done though.

The concept of beauty is (for the most part) subjective, but (and by this I mean no offense) how could that livery have been distinctive (characteristic) of TACA when it so closely resembled (as others have pointed out) the manufacturer paint scheme used way back then by those french guys in Toulouse?

198 Mt99 : Obviously, not a very good livery, if you cant tell which airline it belongs to! Ill agree with Tan Sahsa as a good livery.The Aviateca is hideous. N
