Aerolíneas Federales was a Spanish pop/rock band from the decade of the 80's. It was formed in Vigo, Galicia.

History[edit]

Formed in Vigo in 1981 by Miguel Costas and his friends Flechi and Silvino. In the beginning, they played guitar, bass and beatbox. By 1983, the group incorporated a drum-kit and Flechi became the singer of the band. That same year, they won the rock contest of Radio 3 at Coruña and Flechi left the band to join the group Las Termitas. Flechi died from a heart-attack in London in 2002.

The next line-up was composed by Miguel Costas, Silvino, Luis and the girls Coral and Rosa, making songs with powerful guitars and fun and surreal lyrics.

Coral disappeared and was replaced by Silvia; Miguel Costas left the band also; the complete band disappeared in the mid-90's, after some collaborations in the TV-show Xabarín Club, from Galega. Miguel Costas formed the band "Los Feliz", while Silvia joined Superstar, and then the Killer Babies. Rosa went on to open a language training company providing teachers for businesses to give in-house language lessons, called 'Global Project', which is based in Vigo.
