Universal Aviation, the FBO ground services division of Universal Weather and Aviation, has expanded its presence in the Latin America and Caribbean market with two new Universal Aviation Certified member locations in Guatemala City, Guatemala (MGGT) and Luque, Paraguay (SGAS).
“Business aviation traffic to Latin America and the Caribbean continues to remain strong in most destinations, exceeding pre-pandemic levels,” said Adolfo Aragon, senior vice president, Universal Aviation. “However, the traffic influx combined with the global supply chain issues and staffing shortages presents new operating challenges. To address this, we continue to identify highly successful local handlers that share our commitment to standards and service. Bringing these new members into our network reduces risk and eliminates handoffs, one of the causes of trip disruptions.”
The new Universal Aviation Certified members include Air Station S.A. at La Aurora International Airport in Guatemala City, Guatemala and Consorcio Aviation SRL at Aeropuerto Internacional Silvio Pettirossi (SGAS) Located in Asuncion, Paraguay.
The addition of Guatemala and Paraguay expands the Universal Aviation network to 29 locations in Latin America and the Caribbean.
