CAPA: LATAM's exit in Argentina was to be the 'prime opportunity' for LCCs, but uncertainty prevails

21 August, 2020

CAPA - Centre for Aviation, in a report entitled: 'Argentina's government continues to generate uncertainty for LCCs', stated (18-Aug-2020) the exit of a large operator in a growing domestic market such as LATAM Airlines Argentina in Argentina, would be viewed as a prime opportunity for start-ups attempting to grow. However, private airlines in Argentina continue to face increasing levels of uncertainty about how they will conduct business when the country finally resumes commercial flights. For now, Argentina's low cost operators seem willing to weather the added layers of uncertainty present in the operating environment in order to tap what remains a long term opportunity for passenger stimulation.
