LAN firms up commitment to order 50 A320-family aircraft

22-Dec-2010 8:17 AM

LAN Airlines signed (21-Dec-2010) a firm order for 50 new eco-efficient Airbus A320 Family aircraft, making it the largest single airline order for Airbus in Latin America. Initially announced as an MoU at the Farnborough International Airshow in Jul-2010, the carrier’s request for incremental A320 Family aircraft is part of LAN’s growth strategy for Latin America, serving as new and replacement aircraft for both existing and new routes. LAN has also selected Sharklets for the A320 that start being delivered in 2013. As of today, LAN’s total Airbus orders exceed 150, with more than 60 aircraft in passenger operations today throughout Chile, Argentina, Peru and Ecuador. [more]
