Entitled, The Viva Effect: How the irreverent turned dreams into an airborne reality.
Declan Ryan and Rupert Stebbings will be joining to discuss the process of setting up a low-cost airline in Columbia and how it has since grown into an airline that has changed the market in the country and now also, Peru.
