International Air Show - Colombia


  About the fair  /  Why Colombia?

Why Colombia?

Colombia is hosting this fair for the following reasons
  • Latin America and Colombia have a great potential for growth in terms of international air traffic, in addition to the expected growth of the aircraft fleet. This has an impact on the demand for aircraft maintenance and repair services.
  • According to Airbus, between 2018 and 2038, Latin America will need 2,685 new passenger and cargo aircrafts to meet growing transport demand and replace the existing fleet (1,375 aircraft).
  •  In terms of air traffic, it is estimated that Latin America will grow 4.3% on average over the next 20 years, more than regions such as North America (3%) and Europe (3.3%).
  • The demand for new aircrafts in Latin America is concentrated in small or narrow body aircrafts (89%), which favors the implementation of smaller maintenance operations than those required for large aircrafts, where Colombia could be a major player.
  • In Latin America, the market value of related activities is expected to reach USD 268 billion. Additionally, the demand for services will require 47,550 new pilots and 64,160 new technicians.
  •  According to Aerocivil, passenger traffic at Colombia·s airports was 75.5 million in 2019, 9% more than in 2018. On the other hand, between 2016 and 2019, air cargo transportation exceeded one million tons per year. Bogota·s El Dorado Airport mobilized 710 thousand tons in 2019.
  • Colombia has companies with high potential to be suppliers to the international aeronautical industry, certified to the AS 9100 standard. These companies are manufacturers of vehicle parts and parts and aeronautical services companies.
  • The country also has 54 aeronautical instruction centers offering courses for private and commercial pilots, helicopter pilots, in-flight services, aircraft technicians, engine repair and electrical and electronic systems courses.
  • Colombia is using new technologies such as drones, augmented reality and 3D printing. Avianca has begun using drones to perform airframe inspections, which has allowed it to reduce operation time.
