So, what the hell is JetSmart?
Glad you asked! Chances are you’ve never even heard of this airline. However, you might have heard of the Indigo Partners, as they were in the news recently. Indigo Partners are the owners of Wizz Air, Frontier and Volaris, along with JetSmart.
JetSmart is a chilean ultra low-cost carrier, based at Santiago de Chile’s Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport (SCL/SCEL). JetSmart’s first flight took off on July 25th, 2017. As of December, they operate several domestic flights from Santiago, as well as between other cities. They recently opened a route to Lima, Perú and have plans to expand to Argentina and more destinations in Chile and Perú.

As of December 2017, JetSmart operate 5 aircraft, all A320s (ceos). Much like another Indigo Partners airline, Frontier, every aircraft has a different chilean bird in the tail. The one in this request, CC-AWA, has a Peregrine Falcon.
I said earlier that you might have heard of the Indigo Partners as they were in the news. That’s because in November they announced one of the largest commercial orders in history, of more than 400 A320 family aircraft. JetSmart has 56 A320NEO’s in order, and 14 A321NEO’s. The airline will start taking delivery of these new aircraft in 2018 and 2021 respectively.
Why should this be in Infinite Flight?
I think there are at least three reasons why this beautiful aircraft should be in Infinite Flight:
- It’s an awesome livery. Just look at it.
- South American liveries are notoriously lacking, and this airline has enormous potential to dominate the market in Chile and many other countries in the region.
- Much like what happened with Frontier in the October 2017 update, several aircraft have different animals in the tail, adding the possibility for great variety.
So, what do you think? Would you fly it if it was added? Do you like it? Any feedback?
