Avianca unveiled the third aircraft in its vintage collection. This time it is an Airbus A320, registration N821AV, which sports the colors that LACSA -Líneas Aéreas Costarricenses Sociedad Anónima- used in the 90s. With this, the airline continues to honor the legacy and history of Latin American aviation that it carries with it today and allows it to project its mission and vision into the future. This aircraft is expected to cover flights to and from Costa Rica in the coming days.

“With this Lacsa retro airplane we celebrate the Costa Rican origins that are part of our operation. We are proud to be important players in connectivity from Costa Rica and take the Pura Vida that characterizes us so much, beyond our borders, promoting tourism to the country,” said Viviana Martin Manager of Avianca Costa Rica and Director of Inter-Institutional Affairs of the airline.

Lacsa was founded in 1945 and 47 years later became part of Grupo TACA, a company that grouped the main airlines of Central America and in 2009 merged with Avianca to form one of the Latin American airlines with greater connectivity in the region. Currently, more than 400 employees of the airline work in Costa Rica, from where it operates 68 weekly flights to North, Central and South America, making it the largest operator in the country.
