The airline industry is on track to reach new heights with nearly five billion flights and $1 trillion in revenue this year.

Three years after the pandemic, the airline sector has not only recovered from the most serious crisis in its history, but is also on the verge of breaking records in both revenue and passenger numbers.

Data from indicates that the global airline industry is expected to reach nearly five billion scheduled flights and nearly $1 trillion in revenue this year, marking unprecedented levels for the industry. 400 million additional passengers and $158 billion in revenue compared to 2019

Since its dire state three years ago, the airline industry has made significant progress. Despite initially experiencing a catastrophic 60% drop in global passenger numbers and a 70% reduction in revenue, the industry’s demand for air travel has reached new heights.

Recent findings from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) reveal that the airline industry has not only recovered from its most serious crisis to date, but is also on track to set new highs in revenue and number of scheduled flights.

IATA data indicates that total traffic met and exceeded 2019 levels in February of this year, and growth continues. With growing global demand for air travel, the total number of airline passengers is expected to approach five billion by the end of 2024, an increase of 400 million from pre-pandemic levels.

The largest airplane in the world came to Chile: What are the reasons for the Antonov’s presence?

During the day this Monday, it was learned of the arrival of the largest cargo plane in the world to Chile, the Antonov An-124-100, which belongs to the fleets of Ukraine and will soon leave our country.

The plane comes from Milan, Italy, but arrived in Chile after having made a couple of stops in Brazil and Argentina, while in Chile, it landed at the Carriel Sur airport in Talcahuano. It is worth mentioning that the Antonov arrived in Chile yesterday, Sunday the 16th, while this Monday it will take off to leave our country, and thus continue with its cargo delivery work, but it did not come to Chile just for a walk.

Why did the largest cargo plane in the world come to Chile?
This is because the reason for its landing in Chile is that the Ukrainian Antonov brought in its large cargo space a huge turbine and large parts, which are destined for the Arauco company.

The load of the Antonov An-124-100, with these enormous pieces, will be transferred to the Nueva Aldea Arauco Shaft Cutting Plant of the Arauco company, which is located in the Biobío region.

It is worth mentioning that years ago, there was an aircraft with characteristics similar to the Antonov An-124-100, however, it was destroyed during the conflict between Ukraine and Russia. This was the Antonov An-225.

The pending issues for Chilean and Latin American aviation left by the IATA General Assembly

Despite being held in Dubai, Chilean and Latin American aviation has an important place in the last General Assembly of the International Air Transport Association (IATA). The most important meeting of airlines and the World Transport Forum provides important pending issues that the countries of the region must address.


After several years, Chilean and Latin American aviation is experiencing a boom in demand like other regions. The favorable winds generated by the needs to travel and stay physically connected encourage the projections of the airline industry. “Aviation has recovered from the pandemic and is growing profitably to meet people’s needs to fly and transport goods,” says Willie Walsh, IATA Director General.

In Dubai, IATA calls on governments to action on different fronts. To do this, it proposes work based on global standards, modernization of practices and building a more sustainable airline industry. For Chilean and Latin American aviation, the call to action is not very different. Despite the reduction in costs, modernization of fleets and operations carried out by airlines, the sector faces several turbulences that are not of the sector, but do intervene directly. “The situation underscores the need for more infrastructure and supporting policy reforms to ensure long-term viability,” says Peter Cerdá, IATA vice president for the Americas. “Governments must recognize the (air) sector as a reliable partner.”

How Flygreen is ascending into the future of private aviation

Like many industries, the private jet charter business is innovating at a rapid pace. Flygreen, a North American private charter service, has developed a trusted customer base through its ability to provide fast and reliable aviation solutions

with just four hours notice. One of the ways Flygreen can achieve this is through its impressive use of technology, as well as its breadth of contacts, such as the more than 7,000 operators you can choose from.

A key figure on Flygreen’s senior leadership team is Vice President of Operations, Pascal Couture-Tremblay. A 2015 graduate of Bishop’s University of Quebec, Couture-Tremblay serendipitously got into private aviation in 2018 and began working for one of the world’s leading charter brokerage companies. He rose through the ranks to the point of leading the Canadian private jet team and then joined the Flygreen team in 2023 as vice president of operations.

Offering its customers a fast and efficient way to book a private jet, Flygreen aims to have passengers take off within four hours of initially requesting a charter flight, if required. It can achieve this by using innovations like its JETPRO platform, which allows Flygreen to source aircraft faster and more accurately than its competition.
