Sky Airline plans to start operating in November with flights linking
Brazil to Chile. The National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) announced
that it has received a request for regular international operations in
Brazil from the Chilean low-cost company Sky Airline. The company
already has endorsed legal functioning since 2013, but has never operated
regular flights in the country. To start regular flights, operational authorization
is required. According to Anac, Sky Airline intends to start operating in
November. Before the Chilean company, European Norwegian and
Avianca’s Avian, also from the low-cost segment, began applications to
start operations in Brazil. Argentine air carrier Flybondi has received
authorization from the Argentine government recently to operate in the country.
After that, Flybondi must request legal and operational guarantee from Anac.
