SKY increases weekly flights between Lima and Punta Cana

Punta Cana.- SKY Airline Perú has announced an increase in its weekly flights between Lima (LIM) and Punta Cana (PUJ), from 7 to 11, starting November 25. This adjustment will include double daily flights on specific days, boosting capacity from 2,604 to 4,092 seats per week.

Matthieu Selo-Poirier, Network Planning and Strategy Manager, stated that the additional flights will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, utilizing their Airbus A320neo fleet, which accommodates 186 passengers.

This expansion will enhance SKY’s connectivity to other national and international destinations, such as Buenos Aires/Ezeiza (EZE), Montevideo (MVD), Santiago (SCL), and São Paulo/Guarulhos (GRU).

With this increase in frequencies, SKY aims to compete more effectively with LATAM, which already offers two daily flights on this route. Data from Cirium indicates that this change represents a 1.9% growth in seat supply compared to pre-pandemic levels.

According to the Civil Aviation Board (JAC) of the Dominican Republic, the Lima – Punta Cana route handled 282,083 passengers in 2023, with 88,314 flying on SKY. Lima ranks as the second-highest destination for passenger movement on direct flights from the DR, with 303,285 passengers traveling between Lima, Punta Cana, and Santo Domingo in 2023, served by three airlines: Arajet, LATAM, and SKY.
