Transportes Aereos Centro-Americanos (TACA) de Venezuela was founded on August 18, 1944. The establishment of the company was part of the plan to set up subsidiary TACA companies in all South American countries. In January of 1945 TACA de Venzuela, in cooperation with its sister company TACA de Colombia, opened nonstop service from Caracas to Bogota followed by expansion including direct service betwen Marachaibo to Bogota. By 1950, however, the TACA empire collapsed; the Venezuelan branch was liquidated and Linea Aeropostal Venezolana took over the routes.
