Strategy for profitable growth in Latin America

IATA announced (24-Mar-2010) an industry strategy for profitable growth in Latin American aviation, outlining specific recommendations on priorities for Latin American aviation including:

  • Safety: Governments encouraged to make Latin America the first region where both of IATA’s flagship audits—IOSA and the IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations—are a mandated standard requirement;
  • Security: Replacement of airport-by-airport approach with regional partnerships that spread best practices. [more]

IATA:Profitable growth requires that all aviation stakeholders in Latin America—airlines, airports and infrastructure providers— work with a common vision to achieve our priorities: safety, security, cost reduction, environmental responsibility and liberalization.” Giovanni Bisignani, Director General and CEO of IATA.
