Skymaster Airlines was a cargo airline based in Manaus, Brazil. It operated charter cargo services in Brazil and other countries in the Americas.


The airline was established on 30 November 1995 and started operations in 1997.

On February 19, 2014, Skymaster along with BETA Cargo were fined by CADE (Brazilian antitrust court) a combined 83 million reais (35 million USD), for running a cartel that hampered competition and drove up bid prices of procurements by the country's state-owned postal service Correios.[1]
