Perhaps the reason they used two companies is that they wanted to be prepared to handle all teams at once. That is they needed 11 different instructors with tandem chutes ready.

This would be needed if the first flight got delayed  and all the teams arrived more or less at the same time. I assume that it takes quite a while to perform the flight, pack up the chute and drive back up to the starting position and make ready for another flight.

Probably, it takes like 20-30 minutes to paraglide down to the beach, and another 20-30 minutes to go back to Iquique... that's without time to gather the equipement and check it for safety.
