In October 2009, AeroGal announced its merger with the Colombian airline Avianca, and the Salvadoran airline TACA. The airline is currently in a process to change its branding to Avianca.
Avianca currently owns the majority of the airline with more than 81% acquired, which forced Avianca to make a large investment of U.S. $ 7.2 million to strengthen and modernize the company. Despite the purchase by Avianca, AeroGal will continue using its separate identity and will continue to operate in Ecuador. In June 18, 2014 the airline has taken its new name Avianca Ecuador.
