On October 3 2018 Chilean low-cost airline SKY Airline presented to media, authorities, spotters and other guests, its first Airbus A320neo.
The airliner, an Airbus A320-251N is registered as CC-AZC (msn 8444), is owned and operated by the lessor ALC A320 8444, LLC. It is the very first brand-new aircraft ever acquired by SKY in its history.
The presentation, leaded by SKY CEO Holger Paulmann, consisted of two flights with the guests over Santiago de Chile, highlighting the different touristic attractions of Chile’s capital.
The aircraft arrived in Chile on September 23 2018.
Its first revenue flight took place on September 28, 2018 from Santiago to Arica.
Since then, CC-AZC has made daily flights to that city in the extreme north of Chile, and Punta Arenas in the southern tip of the country, with stopovers in intermediate cities.
Its first international flight took place on October 4, between Santiago (SCL) and Lima, in Perú (LIM).
