El Sol de América C.A. (also known as Sol América) was a Venezuelan airline headquartered in Caracas.[1] It operated domestic charter services. Its bases were at Simón Bolívar International Airport and Josefa Camejo International Airport.


The airline was established and started operations in Spetembe 12, 1980 as an air taxi operator within southern Venezuela. It began targeting tourist destinations in 2001 and new management led to the operation of commuter and charter flights, opening new routes between north Venezuelan cities and south Caribbean islands.
