BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil is determined to lure airlines to operate domestic flights in Latin America's largest aviation market, and is taking meetings with at least three carriers, a senior government official told Reuters. "We are going to talk with Jet Blue, we are going to talk with Volaris, a Mexican group ... we are going to talk with Sky Airline, which is Chilean," Ronei Glanzmann, Brazil's civil aviation secretary, told Reuters on the sidelines of the ALTA Airline Leaders Forum, an industry conference. "These are conversations to introduce Brazil to them, they do not mean that the airlines are saying that they will come here," he added. Glanzmann said the meetings with Volaris and JetBlue Airways Corp <JBLU.O> will take place on Monday. A representative for Sky said they had canceled their participation in the ALTA conference due to the civil unrest in Chile, but declined to comment on taking a meeting with the Brazilian government. Jet Blue and Volaris did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Brazil's government has recently begun a push to open its aviation market, the largest in Latin America. Right-wing president Jair Bolsonaro has allowed foreign carriers to set up domestic carriers in the country. Currently, Brazil's domestic air travel market is highly concentrated among three airlines. Until earlier this year, there was a fourth player, Avianca Brasil, but the airline stopped operations in May after filing for bankruptcy operations late last year, highlighting the high risk and volatility of operating in Brazil. Reaction to Brazil's liberalization been slow, but already Spanish airline group Globalia has declared its intention to operate a domestic airline in Brazil. But Glanzmann hopes others will too. His strategy, he said, involves airlines dipping their toes in the Brazilian market first by operating international flights. "We are working first with international routes, but we are already working so that those operations will become domestic operations in the Brazilian market," Glanzmann said. In the past year, four foreign low cost airlines have begun operating international flights to Brazil: JetSMART, which belongs to Indigo Partners, Sky Airline, Norwegian Air Shuttle <NWC.OL> and Argentina's Flybondi. Still, some industry watchers are skeptical that anyone will attempt to enter Brazil's domestic market anytime soon. "We don't see anything changing in the short term regarding a new low cost airline operating domestically," said Eduardo Sanovicz, who heads ABEAR, an industry group that represents Brazil's two largest airlines. "For a company to start flying in Brazil, they will need to know that they will have the same costs as we do." Brazil's carriers have long complained about high costs of operating in Brazil, especially value-added taxes on fuel that can be as high as 25%.

July 16, 2019 SKY Airline CEO Holger Paulmann commented on the Argentina–Chile market, stating that traffic has reduced continuously since Jun-2018, adding: “Two years ago, 75% of the Argentina-Chile traffic was made up of Argentinians. Today it is less than 25%” (HostelTur, 15-Jul-2019). Mr Paulmann added that the recession led SKY Airline to cancel routes to Rosario and Cordoba. He also commented on plans to launch domestic services in Argentina, stating: “At this moment it is not a priority” (HostelTur, 15-Jul-2019). Mr Paulmann added that Argentina’s Government is establishing the fundamentals for the LCC model to be profitable in the country, yet “it is not very attractive for an operator to come to Argentina when another operator is as dominant [as Aerolineas Argentinas] and is subsidised by the state”. https://blueswandaily.com/argentinas-recession-causes-chile-argentina-passenger-profile-shift-sky-airline-ceo/
17-Jan-2019 7:21 PM A taxa de ocupação nos primeiros 30 dias foi de 87%. Isso é explicado em parte do potencial turístico do Brasil e do Chile, o primeiro, amor por suas praias e clima; enquanto o segundo atrai apreciadores de vinho e os amantes da natureza A rota Santiago-São Paulo, oferecida pela SKY, a melhor companhia aérea de baixo custo América do Sul, completa um mês hoje (17.01). Embora a companhia aérea opere no país desde novembro de 2018, a rota para São Paulo foi a última rota a ser implementada e os números são encorajadores, de acordo com relatórios da SKY. “O Brasil é um mercado com significativo potencial de desenvolvimento para nós, dada a relação entre os dois países. Além disso, o Chile e o Brasil também se reforçam mutuamente do ponto de vista turístico, porque os chilenos gostam das praias do Brasil e os brasileiros, da neve; portanto, esperamos que nossos voos mantenham e até mesmo excedam a taxa de ocupação estimada ", disse o CEO da SKY, Holger Paulmann. A alta demanda por voos é justificada, já que o Chile é um país atraente para brasileiros não só pela proximidade, mas também por ser um país cheio de história, boa gastronomia e vinhos. Além disso, são as paisagens naturais de norte a sul, como a Cordilheira dos Andes, o Deserto do Atacama e as Torres del Paine, entre outros. Os brasileiros que gostam de vinho, por exemplo, podem, a pouco mais de três horas voo, visitar as vinícolas e experimentar as melhores produções do chamado "Novo Mundo". Para quem prefere esquiar no inverno, o Chile é líder em esportes de neve de inverno reconhecidos a pouco mais de uma hora de Santiago. "Nosso principal objetivo é democratizar os céus com passagens acessíveis a todos; tornar o transporte aéreo um espaço de inclusão em toda a América do Sul”, disse Paulmann. As rotas para o Brasil são operadas com a nova frota de aeronaves A320neo, a mais nova e moderna de uma companhia aérea de baixo custo na América do Sul. Estas aeronaves destacam-se por sua eficiência no consumo de combustível, segurança e menor impacto no meio ambiente. Atualmente, a companhia aérea eleita a melhor low cost da América Latina oferece seis voos semanais para o Rio de Janeiro (todos os dias menos às terças-feiras), a partir de Santiago. Para Florianópolis, são quatro voos semanais (às terças, quintas, sábados e domingos), saindo de Santiago. E para São Paulo, mais cinco, totalizando 15 voos semanais, conectando o Brasil ao Chile.

https://blueswandaily.com/capa-it-remains-to-be-seen-how-yields-are-faring-in-chile-with-the-lccs-market-stimulation/ May 7, 2019 CAPA – Centre for Aviation, in a report entitled: ‘Chile‘s LCCs JetSMART, Sky, spread across Latin America‘, stated (07-May-2019) that a quick snapshot of Chile’s domestic aviation market data shows that JetSMART’s thesis of passenger stimulation could be occurring in Chile. SKY Airline‘s domestic passenger levels grew 10.5% year-on-year in 2018 and LATAM Airlines Group‘s total passenger growth in Chile was 10.6%. Chile’s domestic passenger levels have expanded and even as LATAM‘s passenger share has decreased, its dominance remains intact. But it remains to be seen how yields are faring at Chile’s three largest airlines.
