Avianca-Taca has announced the launch of a new route from San Salvador, Taca's original base in El Salvador, and Cuba's capital Havana.

According to the airline, the Airbus A319-operated flight will be launched on 6 August with three weekly frequencies on the pairing.

According to an Avianca-Taca source, this flight is a move to further consolidate the airline's leadership in the Caribbean region while gaining access to new traffic, including European passengers on multi-destination trips visiting both Cuba and Central America. The carrier stated that fast-growing passenger base should initially represent 10% of the travellers on the new San Salvador-Cuba route.
