AviancaTaca has reported a 2012 net profit of COP$351. 6 billion ($198.6 million), up 160.7% year-over-year, in unaudited results.

Operating revenue for 2012 was up 13.7% to COP$7.6 trillion and operating profit was COP$506.8 billion.

Both, ASKs and RPKs increased 10.3%, as Avianca, Taca and their subsidiaries reached a system passenger load factor of 79.6%. The airline said the results were mainly due to fleet enhancement and route network and improvement in the Bogotá, Lima, San Salvador and San José (Costa Rica) hubs.
