SKY Airline (Chile) (H2, Santiago de Chile) has applied for a US Foreign Air Carrier Permit (FACP) and exemption to commence operations between Chile and the United States, initially via Peru and using its already US-approved subsidiary SKY Airline Perú (H8, Lima International).

The low-cost carrier said that in the first phase, it would market SKY Airline Peru's flights by placing its 'H2' code on those flights. Direct services from Chile, operated by the Chilean AOC, will commence once the airline takes deliveries of its A321-200NY(XLR)s. SKY Airline has ten of them on order from Airbus.

The airline did not disclose any planned routes.

SKY Airline Perú obtained its US FACP in late 2020 and began daily services from Lima International to Miami International in June 2022. It remains its sole US service, as well as the only route operated under the Peruvian AOC's own 'H8' code. The other flights are flown under the Chilean unit's 'H2' code. Its fleet comprises seven A320-200Ns and one A321-200NX. In turn, the Chilean unit operates a further eighteen A320-200Ns and three A321-200NX, according to the ch-aviation fleets module.

Besides Miami, the other two North American destinations served by SKY Airline from Lima are Cancún and Punta Cana. The carrier's northernmost destination currently served directly from the Santiago de Chile base is Bogotá.
