AviancaTaca, one of the largest airlines in Latin America, received the 9 Airbus A330 and arrived with the fleet at 100 Airbus aircraft, all operational. The handover ceremony took place on September 11th in Toulouse, France. The aircraft is powered by Rolls Royce Trent 17 engines.
The widebody A330-200 aircraft is configured in two classes - 222 for business and 30 for business class. The aircraft is compatible with short flights, but is also very efficient on long-haul flights.
"AviancaTaca has one of the youngest fleets in Latin America, with an average of five years," said Rafael Alonso, Airbus Executive Vice President, Latin America and the Caribbean.
Currently, AviancaTaca operates 100 Airbus - 91 aircraft from the A320 and 9 A330 family. And it still has 190 units ordered.
AviancaTaca was formed by the merger of Avianca airlines from Colombia and TACA Airlines from El Salvador. In June, Avianca, Taca Airlines and Copa Airlines have joined the Star Alliance. After aeration, the aforementioned fusion also took place.
