Avianca Brazil to expand its fleet to 26 aircraft, likely to add the 15 LAN A318s

Avianca Brazil (OceanAir Linhas Aereas dba) (Sao Paulo) is expanding its fleet to 26 aircraft from 17 by the end of this year according to this report by CAPA.

The fast-growing airline is also the likely buyer of the 15 former Airbus A318s being remarketed by Airbus. LAN Airlines (Santiago) is replacing its A318 fleet with larger A320s.

Avianca Brazil is phasing out its older Fokker 100s. The company also added its first Airbus A320 this month.

Avianca Brazil is the operating name of Oceanair Linhas Aéreas. Even though the legal name of the airline remains OceanAir, Avianca (Colombia) authorized OceanAir to use its name as a brand name. Avianca (Colombia) and Avianca (Brazil) remain separate legal entities although they are closely linked and belong to the same holding group.
