Comes in at US$1552 on those same dates if you start from SCL.

Are you sure? SCL is considerably closer to GRU than LIM is, so that first/last leg is considerably shorter. (1626 vs 2160 miles)

EDITED TO ADD: I see you mention BOG but that's not the routing I am getting; both LIM and SCL origins connect to TK at GRU, using the link you supplied in the OP - at least for the outbound.

For the return it shows up right away with the link I posted.

But I can't get the SCL routing to work yet.

Click on the link you posted.

Change "LIM" to "SCL" and run the search again.

Click on the resultant TAs offers.

Cool! Reminds me of AUA ECN.

You may want to change the OP from Cyprus to Northern Cyprus or Turkey.

You will need a visa on arrival or in advance for entrance to Ercan. Furthermore, Istanbul to Ercan is treated as a domestic flight, meaning you must make an international-to-domestic transfer to Northern Cyprus.

Lastly, Ercan in Northern Cyprus is significant farther than the southern beach cities in Cyprus and requires a border-crossing to the EU side. Just a word of caution.

The trip from ECN to the Republic of Cyprus is not without risk. Technically, you can only enter on a day permit ... Now, there are reports of people having done extended visits to the south, but I wouldn't count on that ...

Also, and this is definitely the case, you'll have to walk through the demarkation zone, as cars (including taxis) can't pass.

There are separate crossings for cars vs pedestrians. If you have an EU passport or a passport that can enter the EU, there is little risk. The hassle is with the first point of entry into Turkey.

Actually there is no visa required the flight to North Cyprus from Turkey is considered an international flight. All you have to do is connect at International Arrivals in Istanbul and then you go to the lounge for TK and wait for your connection. Same on return.

Visas for Turkey can be bought online and are super simple if you decide to do a stopover in Turkey too if you're from the US or many other countries.
