Yes. Avianca operates the route, while TACA provides the aircraft. Quite an interesting combination, isn't it?

Qatar Airways coming to Philadelphia

Qatar Airways will add Philadelphia to its nonstop routes from Doha next year, making the city the carrier's fifth gateway in the United States.

Qatar Airways chief executive officer Akbar Al Baker announced the new route Monday at the opening day of a Middle East travel exhibition in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The airline flies to 126 destinations worldwide from its hub in Doha, the capital of Qatar, which borders Saudi Arabia.

"Philadelphia is one of the major hubs of the soon-to-be merged American Airlines/US Airways and will provide Qatar Airways' customers with onward connections to over 100 cities," Al Baker said in a statement.

That's great news for SFO since it'll mean that will host to the only nonstop service between Ireland and California (and possibly the West Coast too) once again. Even better is that the frequency this time has been hiked from four weekly the last time in 2009 to five starting next year. Fantastic news indeed for both SFO and YYZ!

Hey Field....

Any chance you have come across any renderings of the proposed hotel at SFO (the old Hilton location near the 101 entrance?). I haven't seen anything.

That is going to be one long route with an A330. Why don't they switch the A340 from MIA and put it on the JFK. That is good news since United announced that they are ending EWR-EZE route.

This is more about access to foreign destinations from North America than foreign airlines entering North America. But if UA is cutting the EWR-EZE they may be relying on AC to pick up the route to maintain a Star Alliance connection from North America with TAM switching over to OneWorld. Currently the AC trip stops over in SCL, but a direct YYZ-EZE is being considered:

Direct flights to West Africa would also be a benefit. ET offers connections to East Africa while SA has connections to southern Africa via JFK or LHR.
