JetSMART launches new route to Valdivia

JetSMART has launched flights between Santiago (SCL) and Valdivia (ZAL), which will be the carrier's 11th route from the Chilean capital since it began commercial operations last summer. This will be four times weekly using a fleet of A320s, of which it currently has 5. The area has enormous potential for the tourism industry and they hope that this will help them against their competitors, Sky Airline and LATAM Airlines.

Chile's JetSMART officially launched their Santiago-Lima route and is evaluating the implementation of the regional flights in Peru

In November 2017, Chile's JetSMART launched their first Santiago-Lima flight. To date, the aforementioned low cost airline operates 11 regional routes in Chile. With the launch of its new international destination it will compete directly with Sky Airlines, which also offers tickets between Lima and Santiago under the 'low cost' scheme. JetSMART informed that the price of the tickets for its new route will start from approximately 69 dollars (ticket cost plus taxes) for the Santiago-Lima section; while the value will be 59 dollars for the Lima-Santiago section. Currently the only low cost airline operating in our country with regional routes is the Colombian Viva Air.

Chile's JetSMART continues its expansion by launching a 5-times weekly service between Santiago and Puerto Montt

JetSMART, the new Chiliean ultra-low-cost carrier, continued its expansion on 14 September, starting a five times weekly service between Santiago (SCL) and Puerto Montt (PMC). The 917-kilometre route will be flown by the carrier on its fleet of A320s, with it joining LATAM Airlines (55 weekly flights), Sky Airline (29) and Latin American Wings (11) on the city pair.

JetSMART cites numerous opportunities for expansion

JetSMART is casting a wide net through South America for potential expansion, but the ULCC start-up aims to create a stable platform in Chile before aggressively expanding to other countries in the region. However, the airline plans to use rights it has secured for service from Santiago to Lima in the near future. 

Backed by the ULCC specialist Indigo Partners, JetSMART is learning the nuances of operating within Latin America, including navigating complex ownership rules imposed by some countries, and establishing a home market base where rivals have already positioned themselves to compete with new low cost entrants. Although there has previously been some discussion about Indigo making moves in the Canadian market as aspiring ULCCs are working toward a launch, the company is not yet ready to commit to Canada as it continues to study the country’s regulations governing foreign airline ownership.

Chile's JetSMART launches service

JetSMART has launched commercial service, and plans to fly to eight domestic destinations in the coming months. The Santiago-based low-cost carrier operated its first revenue flight, from Santiago to Calama in northern Chile, on 25 July. It is operating nine-times weekly on the route.

The airline will face competition on most of its planned routes, FlightGlobal schedules data show. LATAM and Sky operate from Santiago to Antofagasta, Concepcion, Copiapo, La Serena, Puerto Montt and Temuco. They also offer nonstop service between Antofagasta and La Serena. Another Chilean carrier, Latin American Wings, operates from Santiago to both Concepcion and Puerto Montt.

JetSMART brings some more colour to Chile’s aviation market

JetSMART made its formal request for an air operator certificate to the Chilean Civil Aviation Authority in January 2017 and will reveal more about its plans, including its operational base once this process has been completed. It remains tight-lipped over its development but is expected to serve a network covering domestic and regional international services. The famous tail artwork that has brought some colour to airports across North America and the Caribbean through the operations of Frontier Airlines, will be replicated across South America as Arizona-based investment firm Indigo Partners establishes a new ultra-low-cost operation in Chile. JetSMART will launch operations this year, growing to a fleet of three A320s by the end of the year, and nine by the end of 2018. Having already successfully helped to establish and develop LCCs such as Wizz Air in Europe and Volaris in Mexico, Indigo Partners plans to play a major role in the continued emergence of the sector across Latin and South America.

 “We at Indigo have spent the last 15 years developing and refining this business model and we believe that the arrival of a similar airline in Chile will be well received,” said William Franke, co-founder and managing partner of Indigo Partners and one of the world's most-influential investors in budget airlines.

 “In Europe, low-cost airlines account for 40 per cent of all air travel. In the United States, they represent about seven per cent and the market share has grown for these companies by 10.3 per cent in the last three years. By 2034, low-fare operators are expected to account for 21 per cent of the world market,” he added.

 JetSMART will adopt the same no frills concept of Indigo’s other entities permitting customers to pay for the services they require in return for a reduced basic air fare. This model has shown a strong stimulation of demand in other parts of the world making flying more affordable for travelers. “In Chile [we] believe there is an overlooked customer segment wanting to fly, but for the right price,” explained Franke. “Chile is an attractive entry point for the launch of a low-fare carrier, it has economic stability and aviation traffic growth; a growing economy; a supportive and fair regulatory environment; and open skies and strong bilateral treaties with neighbouring countries.”

 The airline will be piloted by respected industry executive Estuardo Ortiz, a former executive vice president and chief operating officer at both Avianca and TACA Airlines. “The model at JetSMART will mean lower airfares for all Chileans, which will encourage non-fliers to fly and regular fliers to fly to various points in Chile and beyond,” he explained.
