Chilean low-cost airline asks to operate in Brazil

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.
