TAME inaugurates new route from Quito to Lima
- TAME, the state-owned airline of Ecuador, continues to grow its regional network from Quito (UIO) with the launch of daily flights to Lima (LIM) in neighbouring Peru. The 1,300-kilometer route along the Andes is operated with one of the two A319s purchased by the airline this year. Competition on the route comes from Taca and LAN, which connect the two capitals with respectively 14 and 11 weekly flights. Rafael Farías, TAME’s CEO, underlined: “Launch of this new route inaugurates the celebration of TAME’s 50th anniversary this December.” Notably, Lima is TAME’s third international destination launched this year, and follows the July launch of the airline’s Bogotá, which was extended to include Caracas in mid-September.
