- Ryanair- Flybondi
Former Ryanair Holdings PLC chief operating officer Michael Cawley alongside former Wizz Air Holdings Plc executive Michael Powell and other investors from Argentina, Europe and Asia, have invested US$75 million into low cost airline Flybondi, in a financing led by Cartesian Capital Group LLC. The opportunity is not just in Argentina, but to the entire region, as evidenced by the arrival of eight discount carriers, including Viva Air Peru — backed by Ryanair co-founder Declan Ryan — and JetSMART in Chile. Flybondi obtained the right to operate 85 routes in South America’s second-largest country and expects to start with 12 this year.Flybondi expects passengers in Argentina to quadruple to up to 80 million in 10 years. Neighboring Brazil saw its air travel more than triple in 13 years after loosening fare restrictions. In Mexico, the number of travelers soared 60 percent in 11 years after low cost carriers moved in. Latam Airlines, the region’s largest carrier by market value, is the most exposed to the entry of the new players, according to Banchile-Citi. About 42 percent of its revenue comes from Latin America, excluding Brazil, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
