TACA is the trade name "brand" comprising a group of five independently IATA-coded and -owned Central American airlines, whose operations are combined to function as one and a number of other independently owned and IATA-coded regional airlines which code-share and feed the TACA brand system. TACA, originally an acronym of Transportes Aéreos Centroamericanos (Central American Air Transport), now stands for Transportes Aéreos del Continente Americano (Air Transport of the American Continent), reflecting its expansion to North, Central, South America and the Caribbean.

The five airlines are:

* TACA International (TA) (El Salvador)

* Aviateca (GU) (Guatemala)

* Regional (GU) - Formerly Inter, it operates under Aviateca's code.

* Lacsa (LR) (Costa Rica)

: Lacsa is the only airline of the group that still operates international flights with its own flight numbers. Its hub is at Juan Santamaría International Airport in San José, Costa Rica.

* SANSA (Costa Rica) (RZ)

* Islena Airlines (WC) (Honduras)

* Nicaragüense de Aviación (6Y) (Nicaragua)

: Regional - La Costeña

* TACA Perú (T0) (Peru) is now an important part of Grupo TACA.
