Planes. Will the old national airline of Ecuador reborn?
Carrier's name should be Ecuatoriana Airlines
Empresa Ecuatoriana de Aviación, better known as Ecuatoriana, was Ecuador's national airline. Founded in 1957 and active until 2006, it could have as its new commercial slogan the title of a Stephen King novel, “Sometimes they come back”. 14 years later, everything could be ready to brush up on the brand and take advantage of a new name, namely Ecuatoriana Airlines. The indiscretion was made public today, on Wednesday September 2, 2020, by media of the South American country, according to which there could be a real historical renaissance.
According to what is learned, the carrier would have asked the local civil aviation body for operating permits, in order to be able to fully cover the airports in Ecuador. Main connections, however, should be those between the capital Quito and Guayaquil. Ecuatoriana Airlines could fly mainly with A-220/100 aircraft, without completely excluding the B-737s. The comments found on-line are not in the name of optimism, such a project at the time of the coronavirus would undoubtedly be welcome, but the impression of many Ecuadorian citizens, and not only, is that it would risk having life short.
