Saab develops, integrates and maintains complete systems within commercial aviation, with more than 4,000 aircraft built – in addition to carrying out surveillance operations with the Early Warning and Early Warning Air System or new generation fighters. Saab’s investments contribute to the economic growth of Latin America through the expansion of the national defense and security market, always focused on promoting the development of better, safer and more efficient aircraft in Brazil.

According to Sergio Martins, director of Air Traffic Management of Latin America, the recovery of Brazilian economic growth is a scenario for the resumption of the Brazilian air transport market: “Latin American air transport continues to grow at an average annual rate of 7.5% – this is the level that is expected of the Brazilian market, with the resumption of economic growth. The political stabilization of the country is an indispensable step for the resumption of the growth of air transport, being an essential element to the incentive to domestic and foreign investments”.

The director also points out that it is essential that the various actors of national air transport keep up to date in the modernization of aeronautical and airport processes regarding technologies and solutions: “Events such as Airport Infra Expo offer the ideal setting for this information exchange”.
