Low-cost carrier opportunity in Latin America

Low-cost carrier opportunity in Latin America

Nearly two decades have passed since the emergence of Low Cost Carriers (LCCs), but their presence across Latin America lags behind most other world regions. This is in part due to market characteristics that present an obstacle to LCC growth, although there are many untapped opportunities that will eventually be exploited. This white paper explores the following:

  • Obstacles to increased LCC penetration on international routes within Latin America
  • Opportunities in several Latin American markets for increased LCC penetration
  • A forward-looking perspective on what happens once LCCs do establish themselves in Latin America
