The Magic of Aviation

Connecting our World

Have you ever thought of what life would be like without air travel? For most of us, it would be drastically different than it is today. Aviation makes the foreign familiar, enables journeys of self-discovery, international exploration and facilitates international commerce.

In Latin America and the Caribbean alone, the air industry generates $167 billion in GDP while connecting 385 cities in the region by air. Every year, 2.6 million flights operate in Latin America and the Caribbean and the air industry supports 5.2 million jobs. Aviation is a force for good in the Americas as it is in the rest of the world.
