JetSMART is planning to fly to Brazil for the fifth time. This route will provide travelers with convenient access to some most popular destinations. JetSMART is launching a new route between Santiago de Chile Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport and Rio de Janeiro Galeão International Airport. This service will connect Chile with Brazil in time for the peak summer season.

A new route for JetSMART

JetSMART is excited to announce that it is beginning service to Rio de Janeiro this Wednesday. This route will offer travelers six weekly frequencies, each starting on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Beginning in February, this route will become daily.

The company is planning to launch a new route to Brazil from its current locations in Chile, Argentina, and Uruguay. It is currently flying to Iguazu International (IGU) and Sao Paulo Guarulhos (GRU) and from Buenos Aires Ezeiza International (EZE) and Montevideo International (MVD) to Rio de Janeiro.

JetSMART is excited to begin flying to Rio de Janeiro. CEO Estuardo Ortiz believes this new route will help bring more people closer to aviation and increase the number of people traveling through South America. JetSMART is a low-cost airline that is planning to increase its passenger count by 2028. They have ordered fourteen Airbus A321XLRs, which is the largest order of this type in Latin America.

With this new route, the airline is hoping to increase connectivity within South America and particularly with Brazil, which is one of the most important & dynamic markets in the region.

JetSMART’s connectivity

Our company currently has 79 routes in South America, with 31 routes in Chile. Nearly half of these routes are point-to-point services that don’t go through Santiago de Chile. Additionally, our company has 16 international routes connecting seven countries in the region.

JetSMART has branches in Argentina, Peru, and Colombia–all of which are expanding rapidly this year. We’re confident that we’ll soon open a new base in Colombia, which will make us the strongest network in the region. JetSMART is one of the most reputable airlines in Chile, with a fleet of ten aircraft. These include three Airbus A320s, four A320neos, and three A321neos.

The connectivity between Chile and Brazil

There are a lot of flights between Chile and Brazil. Three airlines operate them- LATAM Airlines Group, JetSMART, and Sky Airline.

LATAM Airlines is a company that operates domestic flights in both Chile and Brazil. It merged with LAN and TAM in 2012, so it has four different routes connecting different places in both countries.

Sky Airlines, a low-cost carrier serving the Chilean market, flies from Santiago to Florianopolis, Rio de Janeiro, and São Paulo.
