According to the agency, three low cost companies had already requested authorization to fly in the country. Anac attributes the requests to the breach of the baggage allowance rule. Three low-cost foreign companies have already arrived in the country: the European Norwegian, the Chilean Sky Airlines and the Argentine Flybondi.
