Frequent destinations for TACA Airlines, which was renamed Avianca El Salvador, include the airline's main hub at Monsenor Iscar Arnulfo Romero International Airport in San Salvador, El Salvador. The airline's three secondary hubs are Miami, Florida; Guatemala City, Guatemala; and San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Avianca flies to a total of 100 destinations in 27 countries.
TACA Airlines took the name Avianca El Salvador in 2013, following its parent company's decision to give all its airlines a consistent brand. Avianca El Salvador carries more than 56 percent of the traffic at its hub airport in El Salvador, including flights to major U.S. cities such as Los Angeles, Houston and Miami. Latin American cities including Panama City and San Jose are also popular destinations.
Flights from Avianca El Salvador's secondary hub in Honduras, Ramón Villeda Morales International Airport, are available to Miami, San Salvador and New York–JFK. The airline's flight destinations from La Aurora International Airport in Guatemala include Miami and San Salvador. Avianca El Salvador also flies from Miami International Airport to Managua, Nicaragua, and the airline's three other hubs.
TACA Airlines, which was founded in 1931 in Honduras, moved to El Salvador in 1945. Despite occasional violence in El Salvador, the airline operated independently until its 2009 merger with Avianca. At the time of the merger, TACA Airlines was Latin America's second-oldest airline.
