SKY Airline Perú (H8, Lima International) will launch fifth-freedom services from Montevideo Carrasco in Uruguay to two destinations in Brazil in early January 2024.

The Peruvian low-cost carrier said it will connect the Uruguayan capital with Florianopolis (3x weekly starting on January 3, 2024) and Salvador International (3x weekly starting on January 2). It will simultaneously launch services to Montevideo from its home market, connecting Uruguay with Lima International (3x weekly from January 4), while parent company SKY Airline (Chile) (H2, Santiago de Chile) will launch a 3x weekly Santiago de Chile-Montevideo route on January 5.

SKY Airline does not currently serve Uruguay, and the new routes will also be its first fifth-freedom services. The country does not have its own scheduled passenger carrier and is mostly served by LATAM Airlines (22.3% market share by scheduled weekly departure capacity), Aerolíneas Argentinas (16.1%), Copa Airlines (15%), and GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes (12.6%), the ch-aviation capacities module shows.
