Today, more than ever, we value our relationship with the travel agency community and the millions of travelers they serve,” said SKY CEO José Ignacio Dougnac. “It’s important to us that these travelers have access to the best SKY offers from wherever they want, so they can fly on the newest fleet and the most environmentally-friendly airline in South America.”
