TACA (Transportes Aereos del Continente Americano) airlines was founded in 1931 by the Synergy Group based in El Salvador. For 75 years, TACA provided service for air travel to millions of people. In 2009 it was announced that TACA would  merge with the Colombian airline Avianca which is affiliated with Star Alliance. Upon the completion of the merger, on May 31. 2013, Avianca took over the management but upheld the great services TACA was renowned for. With a fleet size of 44, TACA, which is called Avianca El Salvador now offers 50 destinations and 22 countries.

Fly with Ease

Booking flights within this airline is a piece of cake. First search for the flight deal you want according to your destination, then book it, after that enjoy your flight. The company promotes the idea of convenience for the sake of each customer. Most customers find it very easy to book flights and even check in to the airline. Avianca promises all customers that each flight will take-off and land on time.

Avianca’s website is organized for customers to have easy access to deals and information. They can also check the status of their flight and new updates issued by the company itself.

Ups and Downs

Avianca El Salvador airlines is known to provide good quality service to their customers. But there are certain people who would beg to differ. There have been some good reviews and some bad ones. A number of people appreciate the convenient and excellent service of the airline staff. According to some feedback the attendants for every flight were very generous and polite when catering to their passengers. However, there were many complaints regarding the slippery leather seats and less than appetizing meals. There were negative comments stating that Avianca has the tendency to change flight status on the spot, for example; adding stopovers, this might be a counter-statement to other reviews saying that all flights land on time.

Avianca Mobile

Just like other airlines and travel companies, Avianca created its own mobile application to provide a more-convenient way to search and book flights for its customers.

LifeMiles program

To expand their services, the company decided to establish a certain program to reward loyal customers for their trust and faithfulness. LifeMiles covers a variety of benefits, like offering VIP lounges for some leisure time with your family and friends while you wait for your flight to take off, as well as great discounts for travel necessities. This program is distributed not only for Avaianca El Salvador but to other affiliated airlines as well. LifeMiles was the improved version of AviancaPlus and DISTANCIA to enhance the companies service and also compete with other airlines.

Customers conclusion

For some customers, Avianca El Salvador offers great service, from booking right up to the destination. Unfortunately, bad reviews are quick to catch up saying that Avianca may not be the ideal airline to book with. Despite all of that there are still a number of loyal customers who would prefer to fly with Avianca.

This review is written to inform everyone about Avianca’s current situation including their service and customer’s feedback. Feel free to leave a comment or question!

Porter Airline

Established privately with the Porter Aviation Holdings, the Porter Company has history with some of Canada’s best airports, Billy Bishop being one of them (dating back to as far as 1939). Since its establishment, the Company has been able to harness and harmonize with a number of investors.

The Interface of an Advantage:

As an online portal of the company, the website acts as a perfect communication tool between the business corporation and the customers. With its easy to understand and easy to use software, the website’s homepage is self-explanatory and simple. Critically viewing this aspect, this kind of interface simply adds to the customer service credits. Furthermore, user reviews report a high degree of satisfaction regarding the queries asked, and a commendable 24/7 service. The overall reputation of the website and the company rates to excellent on online polls.

The Offers of a Lifetime:

The Company proves now and again that it puts its customer’s first rather than money making tactics. As opposed to most of the other flight companies where business is gold and the customers have to deal with hassle of customs and airports, unanswered queries and fluctuating prices, Porter comes with a reassurance of being customer-friendly, with some simple, yet highly important gestures. These gestures begin from the strategic placement of its airport right down to every staff member that the company has ever employed.

The airport in question is in Toronto, and is downtown. What does this mean? It means you have easy access to it. It means that the area of maximum traffic has been organized. It means that the company has struck gold again. Furthermore, it promises a quick service, so that the airport is not a scene of hustle and bustle and harassed faces checking watches every minute. According to online polls that have been conducted to review the company’s reputation and check for scams, the customer service reaches a level of excellent, with most claiming that the flights were on time.

Thirdly, the company brings a friendly staff for its customers. Added to this is the bonus of- wait for it- free wine and snacks, delivered to your seat in glassware and well cleaned plates. The very gesture of this first class VIP treatment of everybody makes this review even more flattering for the company. The planes have been made more comfortable, with the omission of the middle seat in the second and third class areas, and the expansion of the place per seat to 32 inches. You want to stretch your legs? You can.

The lounges of Porter have been made comparable to the flights in terms of comfort. A critical appraisal of this step must be mentioned because waiting for a flight is the most cumbersome part of travelling. The lounge offers newspapers free of cost, with Wi-Fi and light snacks, also completely free.

These simple yet flattering gestures have won the company many customers, and as though this wasn’t enough, the company has come up with the VIPorter Rewards idea. The idea states that the customers earn points when they use Porter and sign up on the website. The more the points, the more you have the chances of flying to the destination of your choice, and that too free of cost.

Conclusion:

The word “free” seems to be second nature to the Company. With a customer service of one of a kind and facilities that do not only make your journey easy but also understand you, the company has received excellent customer reviews and high ratings on online polls. Conclusively speaking, attempts to prove that this all is a scam have failed miserably. The Company is safe, efficient and should be given a try once if you are in Toronto.
