AeroHonduras S.A./C.V. was an airline based at Toncontín International Airport in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. It operated scheduled flights within Central America and the United States.

History[edit]

Originally established as Sol Air in January 2002, the airline leased a Boeing 727-200 from Falcon Air Express and started operations in Jul of that year. In July 2003, the Venezuelan state-owned airline Aeropostal acquired a 45% stake in the company and rebranded it as AeroHonduras; the airline's President, Ricardo Martinez, retained a 55% stake.[citation needed]

In August 2005, AeroHonduras suspended operations after its only operating aircraft (a Boeing 737-300) wet leased from Falcon Air Express was taken back by the company.[1] Although the airline initially indicated that it was a temporary move, there had been issues with financial payment for services, delays associated with repairs and financial mismanagement associated with its suspension of service.
