Although the three carriers will retain their original identities, they will operate under a new name yet to be announced.</p> <p>"The alliance between ACES, Avianca and SAM will significantly strengthen these airlines, allowing them to compete in an increasingly globalised market," says Posada.</p> <p>With Avianca posting losses of $125.8 million last year and ACES-Colombia expehttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Colombian-majors-merge-144452/

With passenger growth of 12.2 per cent, a revenue increase of 7.1 per cent, and a net result of 4.6 per cent of turnover, the regionals are still riding high. </p> <p>As always, the fact that many regional carriers are privately owned, either as independent companies or wholly owned subsidiaries of major airlines, makes many reluctant to divulge financial information.
