Sky Airline is latest Airbus operator in Latin America
Sky Airline, Chile’s second largest carrier providing passenger, postal and cargo air transport services since 2002, began flying an Airbus A320-200 May 31 to cover domestic and international routes.
Sky Airline received two A320-200s earlier this month, and is expected to start operating the second Airbus A320-200 by end of June. Based in Santiago, Chile, Sky Airline flies to many of the country’s top destinations, including Arica, Iquique, Calama, Antofagasta, El Salvador, Copiapó, Concepción, Temuco, Puerto Montt, Balmaceda and Punta Arenas.
Sky Airline also has international flights to Arequipa, Peru and La Paz, Bolivia. With the addition of two Airbus A320-200s, Sky Airline will increase international routes throughout Latin America and continue charter flights.
Airbus has trained 18 of Sky Airline’s pilots to operate the Airbus A320-200s at its training center in Miami, which recently welcomed a new Airbus A320 Family Thales Reality7 Level D full flight simulator and has another on the way, as part of its ongoing commitment to provide a complete range of integrated training solutions.
