The Latin American and Caribbean Air Transport Association (ALTA) recognized Aviall as a top supplier to airlines in the region for the 2017-2018 time frame. The company received recognition at ALTA’s CCMA and MRO conference.

Aviall was recognized by airlines participating in the conference for excelling in customer support, turnaround time, and quality service. According to the award description, the award is given to companies achieving one of the highest scores on an evaluation by the airlines in the region, and recipients represent “a positive example to follow in order to maintain the continued growth our industry has been achieving over the past ten years.”

While the industry in Latin America and the Caribbean has experienced growth, Luis Felipe de Oliveira, executive director of ALTA, commented on the path forward. “The increase in air traffic is exponential, but [the industry] faces challenges, including lack of adequate infrastructure, significant airport charges, regulations by country, and high operating costs, among which fuel represents about 25 percent.”
