Current challenges and future prospects

The restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic have practically put the world’s air fleet on the ground. However, even in the most difficult moments, ALTA took this

Conference to a successful conclusion, demonstrating the importance of this meeting to generate efficiencies in air transport.

The current post-pandemic puts Latin American aviation in a very different position from previous years. “The Latin American and Caribbean region has been one of the fastest to recover, despite the particular challenges of each country. Despite this scenario, ALTA has continuously provided meeting spaces for efficiency and continues to provide solutions at the height of the context,” says José Ricardo Botelho, Executive Director and CEO of ALTA.

This new edition of the ALTA CCMA & MRO Conference has as its starting point the objective of consolidating recovery and providing more growth opportunities for the air sector in the region.
