Mark Ellinger, chief commercial officer for the airline, said the aim is to begin flying in the summer.

The airline says it has no plans to fly to the U.S., enabling travelers within the region to bypass Miami.

BlueSky is currently going through the regulatory process to obtain an Air Operator’s License in the nine destinations it will service.

Once the airline is fully operational, Ellinger says flights from San Jose, Costa Rica and Bogota, Colombia would be quicker and more convenient than traveling through Miami and having to clear customs in the U.S.
