New Tico Airline Proposes Take Over of Dropped TACA Routes

TICOS-Líneas Aéreas de Costa Rica is the name of a new airline that has begun the process of certification and intent on taking over the routes left behind by TACA Airlines after its complete integration with the Colombian airline, Avianca.

256470The Dirección General de Aviación Civil – Costa Rica’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation – says it has received a proposal from the representatives of the new airline, according to Aviacion subdirector, Alvaro Vargas.

Vargas said that the new airline is in the process of preparing financial and feasibility studies, to operate three to five Airbus aircraft.

Last month, TACA laid off 261 employees in Costa Rica and cancelled five direct flights to and from San José, as part of he integration process with Avianca.

The direct flights operated by TACA were Costa Rica’s Juan Santamaria International (SJO) airport in San José and Los Angeles, New York, Havana (Cuba) and Quito and Guayaquil (Ecuador).

Passengers on Avianca can still fly to those destinations, making stops in either El Salvador or Bogota.

Civil Aviation authorities failed in their meetings with Avianca officials to restore the flights and are now in the process of obtaining outside legal counsel to research and recommend sanctions against TACA.

Very little can be found about TICOS-Líneas Aéreas de Costa Rica, which is not to be confused with the Líneas Aéreas de Costa Rica or LACSA, the Costa Rican airline that was integrated into Grupo TACA.
