Latin America and Caribbean must address urgent aviation issues - IATA

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has called on the governments of Latin America and the Caribbean to focus on infrastructure, costs and the region’s regulatory framework in order to maximise the economic and social benefits of aviation while accommodating the region’s expanding demand for air connectivity.

Aviation already plays an important role in the region’s economy, employing some 5,000,000 people and supporting US$170 billion in GDP.

“We need effective infrastructure to accommodate growth; reasonable costs and taxes that don’t kill it and a modern regulatory framework that supports it,” said Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s director general and ceo during a speech at the Wings of Change – Chile conference in Santiago.
