JetSMART Begins Operating Domestic Flights In Peru

The services of JetSMART Peru have officially begun. JetSMART Peru started flying domestic flights on Tuesday, marking the debut of the third South American branch of the regional ultra-low-cost carrier, which also operates in Chile and Argentina. JetSMART Peru is the third South American branch of the regional ultra-low-cost carrier. There will be a total of 13 itineraries offered by JetSMART Peru, and four of them will not make any stops at Lima International Airport (LIM).

There is a brand new airline in Peru.

The ultra-low-cost airline known as JetSmart Peru is the most recent airline to make its debut in the Latin American market. Furthermore, it is the third airline established in Chile to launch a regional branch in Peru, following in the footsteps of LATAM and Skyline, who both opened regional branches in the country.

JetSMART was granted its Air Operator Certificate by the Peruvian government in the month of April. The Chief Executive Officer of JetSMART, Estuardo Ortuz, said that obtaining this certification will enable the firm to continue expanding and establish itself as the most successful ULCC in South America.

On June 14, 2022, JetSMART Peru made its formal debut by flying an Airbus A320neo along the Lima-Arequipa domestic route, marking the beginning of the company’s operations. This was the first step in the history of the new airline, which plans to carry more than one million passengers in its first year of operations. This was the first step in the history of the new airline.

Estuardo Ortiz added,

“We are here today to celebrate a significant achievement in the history of the aviation sector in Peru. We are the country’s first ultra-low-cost airline, which ushers in a new era of aviation in this part of the world. This is a significant step toward achieving our goal of transporting over 100 million people on 100 aircraft by the year 2028.

As of the month of June 2022, JetSMART is responsible for around 630 flights each week throughout Argentina, Chile, and Peru.

Friendly to first-time vacationers and visitors

The Latin American area has a great deal of unrealized potential in terms of the number of journeys taken by each individual. According to estimates provided by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for the year 2018, there were 0.4 journeys taken by each resident in the area.

Even with the COVID-19 epidemic, it is projected that air travel in Latin America would increase over the course of the next 20 years, and ultra-low-cost airlines will play a significant role in that growth.

JetSMART Peru wants to transport more than one million passengers in its first year of operation and will attempt to recruit new customers, particularly those who have never been on an airplane before. In particular, JetSMART Peru will target those who have never been on an airplane before. In a manner that is analogous to that of its cousin Volaris (both ultra-low-cost carriers are a part of the Indigo Group), JetSMART intends to entice passengers who are presently dependent on alternative modes of transportation and spend a significant amount of time traveling from one city in Peru to another.

JetSMART is hard at work on a comprehensive fleet strategy. It has a purchase order for 124 new Airbus aircraft, including what is believed to be the biggest order ever placed for the Airbus A321XLR in Latin America. At the moment, JetSMART operates a total of 11 planes in Chile, consisting of five A320s and six A320neos, as well as six jets in Argentina (all A320s). Although JetSMART does not yet have any jetliners registered in Peru, the company plans to use the Airbus A320neo in its operations there. Instead, it made its first voyage using an A320neo with the registration CC-AWJ, which was held by a Chilean airline.

Domestic operations are carried out by JetSMART in the countries of Chile, Argentina, and Peru.

Connectivity provided by JetSMART in Peru

In the first stage of its domestic operations in Peru, JetSMART plans to provide 13 different itineraries. This contains four interregional flights, or SMART routes, as they are referred as by JetSMART. These routes link point-to-point and do not need passengers to fly via Lima.

JetSMART will run nine flights linking Lima with the following towns in Peru: Arequipa, Cusco, Piura, Trujillo, Tarapoto, Talara, Juliaca, and Cajamarca. These routes will all originate in Lima.

The Arequipa-Cuzco route, the Arequipa-Trujillo route, the Arequipa-Piura route, and the Arequipa-Tarapoto route are the last four interregional lines that will not travel through the city.
