Aerolíneas Argentinas at a crossroads
Aerolíneas Argentinas – Argentina’s national airline – after posting a profit for the first time since its acquisition by the state in 2008, is facing changes in management and the possibility of privatisation. This period of uncertainty coincides with the arrival of new Embraer E2 aircraft scheduled for 2024.
Abra Holding Group: towards low-cost market dominance
The Abra Group, including Avianca and GOL Linhas Aéreas, is positioning itself to become the leading low-cost airline in Latin America. 2024 will see major changes in the Group’s management, with Adrian Neuhauser (ex: CEO of Avianca) taking the helm following the departure of Constantino de Oliveira Junior.
