NAICM and air agreement will boost Airbus orders

The air agreement recently updated with the U.S. and the construction of the New International Airport in Mexico City (NAICM) represent new opportunities of expansion for airlines that could lead to new purchases of Airbus airplanes, according to the leader of the Analytics and Parcel Post department, Joaquin Toro-Prieto. “Anything can happen. We keep in touch with our clients. From the moment the order is made, we do not forget about them. There is constant dialogue and I do believe there will be additional elements that will accelerate transport. Air Carriers have been actively seeking to become more cost efficient, likewise ensuring the comfort levels passengers demand”. “Brazil, Colombia and Mexico are our main markets in the region. The future is good. Nowadays, the average growth we estimate for Mexico within the next 20 years, is 4.5%, which attests for the solid development of its economy and the middle class”, added Toro-Prieto. He also remarked that the first A320neo to ever fly on Mexico’s skies, will soon be delivered to VivaAerobus (currently, only Lufthansa and IndiGo have one).
