Our Humble Beginnings

Air Flamenco is Born
Founded by Ruben Torres Jr. and Francisco Torres (Paco), their main objective is to provide the excellence service once provided by Flamenco Airways to Culebra and Vieques Islands. The Torres brothers started to provide services with a Cherokee 6 which has a capacity for 5 passengers. Those flights took place between the islands of Culebra and Vieques. Six months after initial operation they acquired their first twin engine BN2 Islander with a capacity of 9 passengers. With this new aircraft category their service expanded with more passenger routes and US postal service between the two islands of Vieques and Culebra and the main island of Puerto Rico.
Five years after established, Air Flamenco increased its fleet to 9 aircrafts expanding its services and charter flights throughout the Caribbean Islands including US and British Virgin Islands.
Air Flamenco expanded its skilled personnel manpower.
