Update of merger and name change of AeroGal (established 1986), to Avianca.
Courtesy wikipedia, in October 2009, AeroGal announced its merger with the Colombian airline Avianca, and the Salvadoran airline TACA. AeroGal merged with VIP Ecuador in 2012 and the last flight to New York was April 17, 2012.
Avianca report-ably owns the majority of the airline with more than 81% acquired with an investment of US$7.2 million. As with any merger this is intended to strengthen and modernize the company. Despite the merger and purchase made by Avianca, AeroGal continued to use its AeroGal identity until 2014 and intends to continue to operate in Ecuador. It wasn't until June 18, 2014, that the airline was renamed Avianca Ecuador.
