Market Potential Latin-America

Fri Nov 14, 2003 5:54 pm

Anyone able to tell me which carriers in Latin- and South-America are currently interested in purchasing/leasing regional equipment? At least VASP and Aeromexico are in the market. but what about the second- and third-tier carriers? Anything from them? Is LAN Chile in the market? What about AeroContinente? At one stage they were interested in replacing their B732 and 721 with modern, large RJs.

No news of any RJs. But today Southern Winds announced today that they are on negociations for the third 763ER lease, two 732 from Varig and two more 733 on negociations.
It appeared today in a local newspaper http://www.infobae.com

Nothing that anybody could write here willl beat the info. in the threads already out there -some may differ- I suggest your best bet is to do a research on recent topics in the matter.

Unless their local economies improve, I doubt you'll see much investment in brand-new aircraft. There is a small Colombia regional called Estellar that plans to acquire some Brasilia's, but I doubt anyone, save Aeromar from Mexico, is shopping on a grand scale for new equipment.

If your query is for more business prospects, I recommend looking up "AvNews Latin America & Caribbean" as they cover aircraft movements in the region pretty comprehensively.

VASP is now completing 70 years of operations (in very bad shape), and its president, Wagner Canhedo said that VASP is going to change its fleet, which is quite old. VASP's financial situation got a bit better, but nothing very good that may possibility the airline to purchase/lease aircrafts. About what Canhedo said, he was probably talking about regional jets, as VASP has only domestic routes and still have no plans to go back to int'l routes...

Satena is only getting 2 ERJ-145, no EMB-120. Aero Continente has purchased 10 B737-200Adv from Grupo TACA.

I´ve heard COPA and bmi being mentioned in the past. However I would discount bmi, it is more likely that they decide after the large STAR Alliance order has been placed to get some commonality.

AeroMexico - 15 EMB135 or EMB145.... plus 15 options of the same type EMB135 or EMB145.

AeroMar (From Mexico) - Via GECAS (I think) it is confirmed with 3 orders of EMB170.

Mexico Air Force - 4 EMB145. The first two scheduled for delivery next December... the other 2 for January and February!

Ricardo, can you confirm the AeroMar leasing order? Haven´t heard anything about this, neither from GECAS nor from Embraer. Anyway, if it is a leasing order it would definately come from GECAS as they are the only lessor for this type.
