2nd Miami-Montevideo Route: SKY Airline To Connect Uruguay Via A Stop In Lima

Summary SKY Airline is starting flights between Montevideo and Miami via Lima, expanding its route network and offering affordable fares.
The new service will use eco-friendly A321neo aircraft and increase connectivity options, providing a one-stop connection to the United States.
The move benefits Uruguay’s connectivity, as it lacks an international flag carrier, and offers consistent demand for low-cost leisure travel.
On 4 March 2024, South American budget airline SKY Airline, one of the continent’s largest low-cost carriers, announced that it would be commencing flights between Miami International Airport (MIA) and Carrasco International Airport (MVD) this spring. The service will operate with a stop at the airline’s hub in Lima at Jorge Chavez International Airport (LIM).
For travel-hungry residents of Uruguay, this new service will be an amazing new opportunity for citizens to visit the American city at affordable fares all year round, with only legacy carrier American Airlines currently operating seasonal services to and from the destination. SKY’s route network from Montevideo has been expanded to eight destinations, with four nonstop flights from MVD and four other destinations connected via single-stop services through Lima.
Service specifics
According to a post on LinkedIn by Matthieu Selo-Poirer, a network planning and strategy manager at the carrier, these new flights will commence on 1 May 2024 and will be operated by the carrier’s A321neo fleet. The airline has gone to great lengths to emphasize sustainability’s important role in its operations and is quick to point out that it has among the most eco-friendly fleets on the continent.

The airline currently operates four different nonstop flights from Montevideo, including services to Lima (LIM), Santiago (SCL), Salvador da Bahia (SSA), and Florianópolis (FLN). With the advent of new one-stop flights to Miami, the low-cost carrier will now offer connections to Cuzco (CUZ), Punta Cana (PUJ), and Cancun (CUN).

Between Montevideo and Santiago, the airline operates three daily frequencies and an increased six daily frequencies from the Uruguay capital to Lima once the new route launches. To Salvador, the airline operates three weekly flights, and during the summer months, SKY also flies three times per week between the city and Florianópolis.
An exciting opportunity
Uruguay is one of the few major nations that lacks an international flag carrier (although this could be about to change), and as a result, comes to rely on services from foreign airlines, which tend to limit connectivity. As a result, SKY airline’s route expansion will become a boon to the nation’s connectivity within Latin America while providing a simple one-stop connection to the United States.
