Continuing to build on momentum established in the event’s first three years, ISTAT members gathered in Lima, Perú, for the ISTAT Latin America Forum on 14-15 November, which marked the event’s first trip to Perú.

  • Eduardo Fairen, Chief Executive Officer, Viva Air Perú;
  • John Rodgerson, Chief Executive Officer, Azul S.A. and;
  • John Slattery, President and Chief Executive Officer, Embraer.

The event also was packed with panel discussions centering on industry issues specific to the Latin American market and numerous networking opportunities.
