Austral acquires two additional Embraer 190s

Austral Lineas Aereas (subsidiary of Aerolineas Argentinas) (Buenos Aires) and Embraer have signed a contract for the sale of two Embraer ERJ 190 jets. The Argentine airline currently operates 20 airplanes of this model.

Like the aircraft that are already in operation, Austral’s new E190s are the Advanced Range (AR) model, which allows the airline to fly on any route inside Argentina and to reach such important capital cities of Brazil as Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, nonstop. The jets are configured with 96 seats in a two-class layout—eight in executive and 88 in economy—with a modern onboard entertainment system equipped with individual monitors.
