Airbus Underscores Leading Presence in Latin America and the Caribbean
Posted: 2016 Apr 03
 
European airframer Airbus put up a strong presence at the recently concluded FIDAE 2016 air show in Chile, highlighting the company’s leading presence in Latin America and the Caribbean, where it has more than 600 jetliners in operation and a market share of 65 per cent based on the to-be-delivered aircraft backlog.
 
“The region’s carriers are setting global standards by flying some of the world’s youngest fleets, driven by a highly competitive market,” said Rafael Alonso, the Airbus head in Latin American and the Caribbean. Alonso anticipates tremendous growth in Mexico, where Airbus has four prominent customers: Volaris, Interjet and VivaAerobus (all of which are low-cost carriers); and cargo operator Aerounion.
 
The newest Airbus jetliner to enter service in the region is the new A350 XWB, which was inducted with TAM Airlines of the LATAM Airlines Group. The in-service fleet average age of Airbus jetliners in the region is just over nine years old.
 
There is also the upcoming introduction of the latest A320neo (new engine option) Family aircraft in Brazil and Mexico.
Brazil is the largest market for Airbus in Latin America, with its aircraft flown by the LATAM Airlines Group, Azul Linhas Aereas and Avianca Brasil.
 
Brazil also represents more than one third of Latin America’s air traffic overall, a figure that has more than doubled since 2000.
