Skyway (天への道 , Road to the Sky?) is a location in Chrono Trigger. Skyways are lines of travel between the islands of Zeal, and utilize magic to transport people. In addition to their placement before Zeal Palace, they are used in the Ocean Palace and on the ground, where they are called Land Bridges. The surrounding aura is similar to that of what surrounds Lavos while in the form of the Mammon Machine.
Skyway is a portmanteau of sky and highway. Since highways are highly trafficked channels for vehicles, this name fits, only instead of roads or water passages, this traffic occurs through the sky.
