FLEET UPDATE: Aerolineas Argentinas takes delivery of its 15th and 16th 737-800's in March and April

Aerolineas Argentinas took delivery of its 15th and 16th 737-800's in March and April with 737-8SH, LV-FVM (c/n 41329/5313) flying from Boeing Field near Seattle to Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE) via Caracas (CCS) on 12Mar15 and 737-8SH, LV-FVN (c/n 41331/5373) following on 22Apr15.  Both aircraft are leased from Air Lease Corp. at a reported US$ 400,000 per month.  

According to the Linea ALA blog, the newest 737-800's, along with 20 more 737-800's ordered directly from Boeing to be delivered in the coming years, will slowly replace Aerolineas' fleet of 20 leased 737-700's (two other -700's are company-owned).  

Since the Argentine government retook control of Aerolineas Argentinas / Austral in 2008 it has added 73 new aircraft to the fleet consisting of 7 A340's, 6 A330's, 22 737-700's, 16 737-800's and 22 Embraer 190's.  Nearly all of the Airbus and Boeings are leased (two 737-700's and one A330 are owned) but all 22 Embraer 190's are owned.  Argentina has significantly more air service now than seven years ago but it is also true that Aerolineas Argentinas has accumulated several billions of dollars in losses in that time.
