This Day in Aviation History: Avianca Costa Rica takes flight

Hello Everyone!

Since a lot of people liked the last one, here’s today’s Historic Day.

On October 17, 1945, LACSA Airlines was founded in a joint Project of Pan Am Airways, and the Costa Rican government. It started operations on 1 June 1946 and was designated the national carrier in 1949.

The airline previously used the TACA/LACSA moniker when it was a subsidiary of Grupo TACA. Since May 2013, following Avianca’s purchase of Grupo TACA, Avianca Costa Rica became one of seven nationally branded airlines (Avianca Ecuador, Avianca Honduras, etc.) operated by Avianca Holdings group of Latin American airlines.
