TAME is dropping the New York (JFK) route on February 1, 2019 due to the financial losses on the route.

The airline is likely to dispose of its single Airbus A330-200 (HC-COH) assigned to the route.

The company made this statement at the end of 2018 (translated from Spanish):

In 2019, the company plans to strengthen the domestic market and analyze the international market, focusing on routes that generate profitability. It should be noted that in 2019 certain aircraft lease agreements will expire, so the fleet approval process will begin, the main focus of which is the optimization of the operational cost that will make the results profitable.

The company also aims to generate a strategic alliance, with investment partners or allies, to strengthen the business model and stabilize the company within the next 3 years.

The airline reaffirms its commitment to quality of service, punctuality, security and air connectivity, in addition to continuing to promote the tourist and commercial development of Ecuador.
