    <p>Success in Latin America means finding a way around the region's obstacles to growth by reaching out across borders</p> <p>The facts speak for themselves. Half of Latin America's airlines are technically bankrupt, around 70% are losing money and attrition is slowly consolidating the region's industry into a handful of airlines. Nearly all of these survive because of cross-border equity alliances.</p> <p>Equity alliances are not unique to Latin America. More famous are those of SAS or indeed the KLM merger with Air France. But the Latin model has evolved a character all its own.</p> <p>The typical Latin alliance starts with a dominant airline in one country taking a stake in carriers elsewhere in Latin America - either existing airlines or those created for that specific purpose. These are then gradually integrated through codeshares, wet leases, branding and centralised management, until the emerging group eventually assumes the character of a single, cross-border airline.

  • LAB looks cross-border for growth

    News | 31 Aug 2004 23:00

    <p>Now that Ernesto Asbun has resolved ownership and pension issues at Lloyd Aéreo Boliviano (LAB), he plans to grow the airline by taking over route rights of grounded Ecuatoriana de Aviacion. A decade ago, Brazil's VASP owned Bolivia's LAB and Ecuatoriana; when Asbun bought LAB from VASP he acquired the $14 million debt that Ecuatoriana owed VASP, a debt now capitalised in exchange for 50.1% of Ecuatoriana's shares.</p> <p>LAB has leased four Boeing 767s and two 757s with plans to revive dormant Ecuatoriana routes to the USA. LAB still needs operating clearance from authorities in Quito and Washington but intends to wet lease its jets to Ecuatoriana and so avoid the US Category 2 limit on its flights and grow through cross-border links. </p> <p>&nbsp;</p>http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/LAB-looks-cross-border-for-growth-186702/
