Aerolineas Argentinas took possession of the first new aircraft after 37 years ago
The title may seem strange, but let me explain the situation. Aerolineas Argentinas, the national company of Argentina, received the first new aircraft after 37 years. Saturday, 28 February 2015, a Airbus A330-200 under the colors Aerolineas Argentinas landed in Buenos Aires.
You may be wondering where this idea came from with the first new aircraft after 37 years ago. Well Aerolineas Argentinas made its last acquisition of aircraft through 1978, the year it bought a Boeing 747-200. And from then until now, the aircraft that were perched on the fleet and even the existing ones were rented or bought, but not us.
The aircraft was delivered directly from the Airbus factory in Toulouse, marking the beginning of a new stage of renewal of the wide-body aircraft fleet. The airplane Airbus A330-200 (LV-FVH indicative) is configured in two classes: 24 of seats in Club Cóndor Class (Business) and 243 of seats in Tourist Class (Economy).
Passengers will benefit from the Panasonic EX3 entertainment system, the most modern in its range, with 9 inch touch screens for Economy and 11 inch for Business.
The new aircraft A330 Aerolineas Argentinas is powered by two engines General Electric (CF6-80E1A4 / B), and the autonomy will allow the airline operator to honor flights to Europe. Aerolineas Argentinas will begin operating flights to Madrid from July 2015
