Aeroquetzal is a defunct airline formerly based at Guatemala La Aurora International Airport. Flying only regional routes first, Aeroquetzal later became the first Guatemalan airline besides Aviateca to operate a short lived scheduled passenger flight to Los Angeles International Airport in 1991. The flight existed for around one month only. However, like for all other airlines operating in Guatemala, the most important route was the one from Guatemala City to Flores Mundo Maya International Airport near Tikal. The airline ceased operations in 1992 due to financial problems.
