    <p>DAVID KNIBB SAN SALVADOR</p> <p>The drive for growth and some underlying political tensions within Central America could test Federico Bloch as he continues Grupo TACA's unique approach to integration.</p> <p>When Federico Bloch first went to work for TACA International Airlines in 1979, times were very different. El Salvador's flag-carrier had only three aircraft and was just part of a Central American aviation industry which had long since fragmented. Although they had at one time been consolidated, the region's six flag-carriers were as divided as the civil wars that split its nations. Today, with Bloch at the helm, Grupo TACA is one of the three most important airline groupings in Latin America. The group's six airlines have a common brand, an integrated fleet of 36 mostly new jets, six regionals providing feeder traffic, 2.5 million passengers annually, and revenues last year of some $700 million. </p> <p>It has achieved this status through a two-step process of integrationhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/TACAs-test-125822/
