Air Flamenco traces its history to Flamenco Airways (ICAO Code: WAF), which was founded in 1976 by Mr. Rubén Torres. The first aircraft used was the Piper Cherokee 6 with flights between the islands of Culebra and Vieques. Six months after initial operation they acquired their first twin engine Britten-Norman Islander with a capacity of 9 passengers. With this new aircraft 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. Within the following five years, the airline increased its fleet to 6 aircraft expanding its services and charter flights throughout the Caribbean Islands including US and British Virgin Islands.In 2009 the airline acquired 2 other Britten Norman Islanders for cargo flights.
It is not clear when the name was changed to Air Flamenco, but the airline website states that Air Flamenco was founded in 1998. It is unclear if the first Flamenco closed down and was restarted or if it changed its name. Maybe someone can clear that. (The last update in the website is 11 Jul 05).
