Taca Reduces Prices by 35%

The measure applies to all flights within Central America and it is looking to reactivate the executive segment, among other things.

Thursday, June 4, 2009

With the aim of reactivating the business class segment, which experienced a reduction of 18% in occupancy during the first quarter of this year compared with the same period last year, Taca announced a reduction in fares, in conjunction with corporate plans and several pricing packages.

According to Elfinancierocr.com, "With this measure, the El Salvador-based airline is also aiming to increase business travelers demand and for the executive class to be used more frequently on airplanes. As a measure to achieve savings in the midst of the crisis, companies started to send their executives via economy class, a trend that Taca now wants to reverse.
