South America - Suggested Routes

Hello all!
With the new update rolling out on all devices, it means a whole new part of the world to explore, and a bunch of new airlines to represent.

Please note that many of the smaller airports in SA lack parking spots. Hopefully, as this region becomes more popular our great Airport Editing team will continue to make good progress on these airports!

The photos on each route include the scenery at either the departure or arrival airport! I tried to pick the best angles.

All of these routes are current, real world routes.
I tried my hardest to select routes that cover a large area of South America.
So anyways, let’s get into it 😃

Two really nice ones are SCEL-SCCI (Santiago-Punta Arenas) and SCCI-SCRM (Punta Arenas-King George Island). Both are actual routes and very scenic.
