A new airline is scheduled to launch in Ecuador in the coming months. The launch date of the startup Ecuacondor is getting closer. The company has made public a number of the routes and fleet it hopes to use to reach these locations. Indeed, news of its first plane’s maintenance check and painting process was released a few days ago. But what is known about the recently formed company?
How did Equacondor come to be?
The first announcement that a new business was in the process of starting in 2022 came from an Ecuadorian aviation journalist. The company is based in Quito and intends to conduct business in the South American nation as a domestic enterprise. Additionally, it just received authorization to function as a charter business out of Guayaquil International Airport (GYE), offering services to a number of foreign locations.
A journalist covering aviation in Ecuador named Nicolás Larenas claims that the new business has a grand plan to service numerous locations throughout the country. He finds that the company’s route pattern somewhat resembles that of TAME, a former State carrier that went out of business in 2020 as a result of overwhelming debt.
From Guayaquil, they are wanting to serve these homegrown objections: Cuenca, Loja, Esmeralda, and Quito, with up to 14 week by week flights. They intend to fly from Quito to Cuenca, Loja, St Nick Rosa, Coca, Esmeraldas, Manta, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
Globally, it has been accounted for that the organization could travel to objections like Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Panama, Aruba, Colombia, Chile, Peru, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Contract activities would cover these objections, beginning with trips to Cuba and the Dominican Republic. Straightforward Flying arrived at the aircraft’s senior supervisor, Alberto López, for input. We didn’t get a reaction prior to distributing this article.
Ecuacondor’s most memorable airplane will be a Bombardier CRJ-200 with a limit with regards to 50 travelers. This airplane, whose enrollment could be N8884E, showed up at Saltillo Worldwide Air terminal (SLW) in Mexico on October 28 at around 12:11.
While the authority enrollment has not been uncovered, information from Flightradar24 shows a CRJ-200LR enlistment N8884E arrived in Saltillo last week. Attempt Air last worked this airplane for Delta Carriers in the US in 2020. The plane was conveyed to Zenith Aircrafts in December 2003, meaning it is almost 20 years of age. In Saltillo, the airplane will be checked and painted, Nicolás Larenas announced.
Bombed new companies in Ecuador
Tragically, Ecuador has had a terrible line of bombed new companies. Consecutive organizations have been not able to set up a good foundation for themselves in the South American country. One sent off tasks yet failed in 2023, while the other got approval to fly a long time back however still can’t seem to start flying.
This organization, utilizing an armada of three Boeing 737-700s, sent off tasks in 2021. During the two years of history of EQUAIR, the organization moved north of 700,000 travelers. In any case, it couldn’t keep flying and stopped activities last month. It was the 11th Latin American aircraft to stop activities beginning around 2020.
The startup was reported in 2021. It got every one of the licenses to send off activities and, surprisingly, uncovered its image and uniform. Ecuatoriana Carriers, resuscitating the old Ecuatoriana de Aviación brand (an exceptionally renowned brand in the nation), was hoping to utilize an armada of Boeing 717-200 and Run 8 Q400 airplane.
In any case, the aircraft has not taken off, unfit to send off its most memorable trip over the most recent two years. In a new meeting, the organization’s Chief, Eduardo Delgado, said the task is continuous yet has not tied down sufficient financing to send off.
