TACA, as the trade name 'brand' comprises a group of five independently IATA coded and owned Central American airlines, whose ops are combined to function as one and a number of other independently owned and IATA coded regional airlines which code-share and feed the TACA brand system. TACA, originally an acronym of Transportes Aéreos Centroamericanos (Central American Air Transport), it now stands for Transportes Aéreos del Continente Americano (Air Transport of the American Continent), reflecting its expansion to North, Central, South America and the Caribbean. It flies to 39 destinations in 22 different countries
