Latin start-up airlines seize on low cost opportunities for growth

Premium Analysis

Two of the most intriguing airline start-ups to emerge during the pandemic are based in the Caribbean and Latin America.

Both Flycana, based in the Dominican Republic, and the Colombian start-up Ultra Air aim to debut in the not too distant future.

Ultra Air believes the COVID-19 crisis has created a window of opportunity in Colombia for another ultra-low cost competitor, and access to affordable aircraft is allowing the company to capitalise on a favourable combination of circumstances.
