The first Boeing 737-8 MAX 8 for Aerolineas Argentinas, delivered on November 22, 2017

On November 22, 2017 Aerolineas Argentinas took delivery of its first Boeing 737-8 MAX 8, the pictured LV-GVD (msn 64207). LV-GVD arrived at the Buenos Aires base the following day via a refueling stop at Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

The new type is expected to enter revenue service on December 1, 2017. The company is expected to have 20 copies by 2020.

Finally on December 4, 2017, Boeing issued this statement and photo:

Boeing and Aerolíneas Argentinas on December 4 celebrated the delivery and commercial debut of the first 737 MAX airplane for the airline and for Latin America.

Aerolíneas took delivery of the airplane, a MAX 8, in late November and flew the first commercial flight about a week later from Buenos Aires to Mendoza, becoming the first in the region to operate the new and improved 737 airplane.

Aerolíneas Argentinas is experiencing strong growth, with a 15 percent increase in passenger traffic in the past year, and a 22 percent increase since 2015. To support that growth, the airline plans to take delivery of 12 MAX airplanes and use them on flights regionally and, later in 2018, to the Caribbean.

The Aerolíneas Argentinas MAX 8 is configured for 170 passengers and fly 3,515 nautical miles (6,510 kilometers).

Aerolineas Argentinas takes delivery of the first direct delivery Airbus A330-200

Aerolineas Argentinas (Buenos Aires) has taken delivery of their first new, directly purchased Airbus A330-200 aircraft as a part of the carrier’s fleet renewal strategy.

The aircraft, A330-202 LV-FVH (msn 1605), is equipped with GE engines and joins the airline’s existing fleet of 11 Airbus widebody aircraft, comprising four A330-200s and seven A340s.

Aerolineas Argentinas will deploy its new A330 on long haul routes from their Buenos Aires hub to Miami and New York City, and then Madrid in July 2015.

Aerolíneas Argentinas has been an Airbus operator since 1994 when the airline began flying the A310-300. In February 2013, Argentina’s national airline announced their order for four Airbus A330-200s to renew and consolidate its widebody fleet.

With more than 850 aircraft sold and a backlog of nearly 400, more than 550 Airbus aircraft are in operation throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. In the last 10 years, Airbus has tripled its in-service fleet, while delivering more than 60 percent of all aircraft operating in the region.
