Last Friday Sky Airline Peru, a subsidiary of the Chilean low-cost carrier Sky, received the permission to start its commercial operations in Peru from the General Directorate of Civil Aeronautics (Dirección General de Aeromáutica Civil - DGAC), the main authority in the country that regulates air transport.
After the Ministry of Transport and Communication already granted Sky Airlines Peru the commercial aviation operation permit for the national air transport of passengers, cargo and mail in December of last year (we reported), another important step was hereby taken to enter the domestic flight market in Peru.
Having conquered the bureaucratic jungle Peru’s second low-cost airline Sky – the first Viva Air already started operation in May 2017 - announced yesterday that their first domestic flight in Peru will takes off on April 8, 2019.
On the updated website of Sky Peru flights can now be booked from Lima to Arequipa, Cusco, Iquitos, Piura, Pucallpa, Tarapoto or Trujillo for as low as US$ 12 (one way) and US$ 18 (roundtrip). Other destinations within Peru will follow.
