Avion Express and ALTA: alliance in the Caribbean

Avion Express, part of Avia Solutions Group, announced that it has joined the Latin American and Caribbean Transportation Association (ALTA) in an effort to expand its presence in the Latin American market.

The airline noted that the partnership with ALTA will enable the company to expand its ACMI services in Latin America, benefiting both local airlines and passengers. The company plans to offer fleet flexibility solutions and improve air connectivity in the region, contributing to local economic growth.

In fact, until last 2023 it had extended its contract with Sky Cana, an airline based in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, where they signed a wet-leasing agreement for three Airbus A321ceo and one A320ceo, between April 2022 and March 2023.

Avion Express CEO Darius Kajokas said, “It is a great honor for us to join ALTA. Latin America and the Caribbean have been a strategic focus of Avion Express for the past several years and will continue to be for many years to come,” according to AviacionOnline.

He noted that on several occasions they have served the Latin American market with ACMI services on airlines such as SKY, Sunrise, VivaAerobus and Sky High, among others, as well as having cooperated with Avianca and JetSMART on projects aimed at the seasonal transfer of pilots between Europe and Latin America.
