Mexicana is reportedly in discussions with IATA to rejoin key ticketing and settlement systems as the company seeks to emerge from bankruptcy proceedings (Dow Jones, 15-Feb-2011). IATA reportedly stated that "if Mexicana is able to comply with the rules of the system and submit the necessary security deposit, they are welcome to again become active." IATA suspended Mexicana from its financial settlement system and inter-airline billing clearinghouse in Aug-2010 when the carrier was unable to post a security deposit.

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.
