JetSmart to begin flights from Chile to Colombia

Tue Oct 15, 2019 1:50 pm

According to Aviacol (www.aviacol.net) Twitter account, apparently JetSmart will be launching operations to Colombia?

My thoughts are BOG-SCL in the new A320neo they just received a couple of days ago. Good move from them!

Looks like they are targeting the Colombian expat community in Chile. They should have looked at CTG as well

Wow, hope them the best. Guess they will seek the more price sensitive passengers (VFR, backpackers, etc). Hopefully they will increase frecuencies in the mid term to be more competitive. Maybe Ecuador is next?

With CLO (very bold move) they're targeting the large expat population that lives in Chile, which is in a large part from that region. In BOG I'm guessing they're more after tourists and businesspeople. Lots of corporate traffic between BOG and SCL for sure.

It's still a 5:45h hour flight with no entertainment. They're clearly not competing with LA and AV which send widebodies with in-seat TVs on the BOG-SCL route.

Anyways, I'm glad that jetsmart is expanding to Colombia!
