This is no joke, April 1st is over !
I have heard about this some time ago already. But as Venezuelan aviation is full of strange rumors that never ever materialize, I didn't want to pay attention. But it looks like this rumor is getting stronger every day, so I decided to post it.
Aserca is currently the largest domestic airline, operating 16 DC9-30 (ch-aviation.ch)

Aserca has been doing a great job improving their services day by day. They are now introducing check-in terminals as first airline in the country.
Buying Santa Barbara would make them the largest and most important airline in the country.
What do you thing ? Would this make sense for Aserca ? What are the advantages/disadvantages if this happens ?
