“Now SKY is coming to Miami! …Are you up for a little getaway? »

This is the slogan that the Latin American low-cost airline SKY Airline Peru uses on its social networks to promote its first route outside South America.

Its destination, as expected for a Latin American airline, is Miami International Airport.

The inaugural flight landed here on Tuesday June 7. In August, SKY will operate a daily flight between Aeropuerto Internacional Jorge Chávez, Peru’s main international airport in Lima, and Miami, airport officials said Thursday.

The new Lima-Miami route uses 186-seat Airbus A320 aircraft.

According to the airline’s website, a return ticket between Lima and Miami now costs $336, including taxes and fees.

SKY Airline Peru is a subsidiary of Chilean airline SKY Airlinenamed best low-cost airline in South America by SKYTRAX in 2018 and 2019.

In addition to SKY Airline Peru, American Airlines and LATAM Airlines already serve the Lima-Miami route.

The new South American low-cost airline joins a wide range of American low-cost airlines, such as Spirit, Frontier, JetBlue and Southwest, which have debuted at Miami Airport over the past two years.

This unprecedented influx of low-cost carriers into Miami is due to changes in how the airport charges airlines for gate space, airport and airline executives told the Miami Herald.
