IATA, its May/Jun-2012 Airlines Financial Health Monitor, stated (04-Jul-2012) jet fuel prices have eased back to levels seen in late 2010, 20% below the peak earlier this year. Crude oil prices tipped below USD100/bbl in Jun-2012 for the first since Feb-2011. Saudi Arabia continues to increase crude oil supply, in efforts to keep prices down and support the global economy. The increases in oil stocks by Saudi Arabia is more than offsetting any fall in output from Iran. Separately, IATA stated fuel prices for the week commencing 22-Jun-2012 stood at USD112.2/bbl, marking a 1.9% week-on-week decline, a 8.3% month-on-month decline and a 9.0% year-on-year decline.

LCCs in Latin America: Peru’s rise as an economic star could draw attention from potential operators
As Latin America attempts to climb out of a two year long recession, Peru has emerged as a bright spot in the region – based on air passenger growth and the country’s economic performance. For the seven months ending Jul-2016 Peru recorded 9% passenger growth to 11.2 million, driven by growth of 10.2% in the country’s domestic market.
Peru’s air passenger growth continues to remain promising, as the country’s largest airline – LATAM Airlines Peru – calculates that the country’s trips per capita are slightly below the still-emerging markets of Mexico, Colombia and Brazil, whose passenger growth potential should remain robust once the country’s economy begins to fully recover.
Periodically speculation arises over the potential opportunity for a low cost airline to break into Peru’s market. The country’s growth prospects certainly warrant examination of stimulative opportunities in Peru, but so far the country lacks a true low cost airline.
