Five years ago Avianca was on the brink of bankruptcy. After purchasing TACA, it is one of the largest airlines of Latin America.
The merger of both companies is likely to trigger a process of airline concentration in Latin America. AeroMéxico has already announced it will seek alliances beyond commercial agreements.
An article in website "En Vivo desde SCL" analyzes the situation: "By purchasing TACA, Avianca positions itself as an aeronautical giant, significantly improving its position to compete with other airlines in the region, specially LAN, who is strongly interested in the Colombian market. The Chilean airline entered this market with the creation of LANCO, considered a possible alternative for creating LAN Brasil. Avianca growth will force a reorganization of the airline situation in Latina America, due to the strong bonds both Avianca and Taca have with different companies in the Region".
