I don't know the exact reasons why there is two airlines owned by the same parent company, but my theory is this. Avensa has a subsidiary called servivensa which flies on certain routes because they can do it cheaper than the parent company Avensa.
If you notice the billboard colors of Avensa resemble Pan Am's colors. The colors of Servivensa resemble the colors that Pan Am used in the 1950's. The reason is that Pan Am used to own a lot of the latin american airlines at one time. including, Avensa, Mexicana, AeroMexico.

Servivensa and Avensa are owned by the same company. Servivensa is non-unionized while Avensa is. Aircraft and routes are frequently interchanged. I have flown Servivensa flights(VC) on Avensa aircraft(VE).
