Flapper announced (09-Mar-2020) plans to commence operations in Mexico effective 2Q2020. Flapper has already registered its first 10 air taxi operators and is in advanced discussions with the Mexican investors that will finance its expansion. It evaluates the size of the market to be around USD700 million. Its plans include offering high season services between Toluca and Acapulco, as well as offering "empty legs" across the country. The proprietary quotation system will be used by charter clients who can receive prices in real-time. In Brazil, Flapper transported over 10,000 customers. Out of more than 450 helicopters and aircraft approved for commercial operations in the South American nation, it currently commercialises 350 aircraft and follows its own safety-audit processes.
