South America’s Sky Airline now offers direct service from Miami to Lima. This is the low cost airline’s first route connecting South America with the U.S. 

The service from Miami International Airport (MIA) to Lima International Airport (LIM) started last month and the airline has so far sold more than 21,000 tickets. The route currently operates six days a week (every day but Wednesday) with plans to increase to seven days a week on Aug. 1, 2022. Round trip fares from Miami to Lima start at $336. 

The move, which fills an “accessibility gap” in the market for U.S. travelers wanting to travel to South America, aligns with the Chile-based carrier’s international expansion plan, according to a press statement. As well as operating in the domestic markets of Chile and Peru, Sky also operates international flights to Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, the Dominican Republic and Mexico out of its hubs in Lima and Santiago. “We seek to bridge South America and the United States, helping travelers from both regions reach their destination with safe and accessible service using the newest fleet in the Americas,” said Sky Airline’s CEO Jose Ignacio Dougnac, in a press statement.

American Airlines and LATAM Airlines Group also fly from Miami to Lima.
