With over 1,000 aircraft sold and a backlog of nearly 450, almost 650 Airbus aircraft are in operation throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, representing a 53 percent market share of in-service fleet. Since 1990, Airbus has secured more than 60 per cent of net orders in the region and in the past 10 years, Airbus has tripled its in-service fleet in Latin America.
