April 12, 2019

Universal Aviation, the worldwide ground support division of Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc. (Universal®) has expanded its presence in Latin America, with the addition of Universal Aviation Argentina.

“Over the last few years, Argentina has become an increasingly popular destination for business aviation, particularly among operators who travel between Argentina, Brazil and Chile,” said Greg Evans, Chairman, Universal®. “We heard from our clients that there was a need for increased standards and service levels in the country. With the recent opening of Argentina to foreign companies, we were able to expand the Universal Aviation worldwide ground support network into Argentina to elevate standards there and better ensure the success of our clients’ missions there.”

Universal Aviation Argentina is based in Buenos Aires at Ezeiza International Airport (SAEZ) and supports all airports in the Buenos Aires area and all outlying stations. Universal Aviation Argentina can coordinate support to operators at more than 35 additional airports in Argentina.

“We’ve assembled a highly-experienced team trained to our highest standards for operational quality, safety, consistency, compliance, and customer delight,” said Adolfo Aragon, Senior Vice President, Latin America & Caribbean, Universal®. “By having our own people supporting you on the ground, our Universal Trip Support Teams will have better oversight and control over the success of your missions—along with fewer third-party handoffs and faster response times.”

Universal Aviation Argentina team members are local experts on everything from ground handling, local CIQ procedures, landing permits, identifying pilot navigators and even local tourism from Ushuaia to Igauzu.

Universal Aviation has more than 40 locations in over 20 countries—including Latin-American locations in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Venezuela.
