A classic competition beats the open skies: Airlines lowered the rate to Montevideo after the entry of JetSmart. The round trip ticket for the end of May went from $237,000 to $186,000 (27% less) the day after the announcement of the new route by the "low cost" US capital.

For the moment, the Government has not added any new airlines in the local market. No airline, national or foreign, has so far taken steps to enter as a new operator in the domestic market.
