10-Sep-2012 12:58 PM

LAN Airlines stated (09-Sep-2012) it has become the first airline in the Americas (and one of the first in the world) to receive the Boeing 787. LAN will receive 32 of this new aircraft over the next ten years, with the first three to be delivered this year. The USD4.9 billion order represents one of the largest investments in the airline's history. The first cities served by the LAN fleet of 787s are Santiago, Buenos Aires, Lima, Los Angeles, Madrid, and Frankfurt. The aircraft will begin to fly commercially over the next few months, and these routes will be added gradually during its first year of operation. [more - original PR]
