TAS – Transportes Aéreos Salvador
|Key people||Carlos Parreiras Horta|
TAS was founded in 1949 as a non-scheduled carrier and flights started in 1950. In 1952 it was authorized to operate regular flights.
In 1955 Panair do Brasil tried to purchase the airline in order to increase its presence in Bahia but the transaction was not successful. Shortly after TAS changed its judicial status to S.A. (corporation) and the acronym was changed to TASSA. In September 1955 Transportes Aéreos Nacional became the controller of the airline.
In 1962 TASSA was sold to Sadia Transportes Aéreos and incorporated by this airline.
TAS served locations within Bahia.
