In 2013, it stated that the region’s aviation sector “has never been stronger” following significant growth over the last decade. indicated that the Latin American MRO market is expected to continue to double in size from $2.6bn in 2014 to $5.4bn in 2024.

Rising Cities

Privileged location

Foreign carriers are also finding a very cost effective alternative to MRO in the region as opposed to North America. Costa Rica’s central location at the heart of the Americas, just a quick flight from Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia to destinations in the US, Central and South America, means that MRO providers can leverage diverse markets.
