Puerto Natales airport

Sky Airlines used to fly during high season Santiago to Puerto Natales, but seems to have discontinued the service.

Does anyone know whether Sky or any other airline is looking to resume a regular service to Puerto Natales? We are not planning to travel there until 2016, so this question is about longer term plans, rather than the current limited situation.

I am told that the airport at Puerto Natales is closed for improvement, making it able to take bigger planes in safety. It is suggested that some people in positions of influence do not welcome the idea of regular flights into Puerto Natales as this takes business away from Punta Arenas !!

Thanks for your update. I also heard that there was lobbying from Punta Arenas to try to prevent Puerto Natales airport from functioning. It would be a shame if such views were ever to prevail.

We are hoping to travel there in mid March 2016, returning mid April 2016. Is it expected that scheduled flights will be using the airport by then?
