FLEET UPDATE: Lineas Aereas del Estado (LADE) to take delivery of two ERJ-135's in late October / early November

Lineas Aereas del Estado (LADE), which is run by the Fuerza Aerea Argentina, is scheduled to take delivery of two ERJ-135's on a wet-lease within the next 60 days. These aircraft will reportedly replace the few remaining Fuerza Aerea Argentina F-28's used by LADE and will complement the four Saab 340B's flown by the carrier mostly on routes to the lightly-populated Patagonia region of southern Argentina.  

LADE's historical mission since its founding in 1944 has been to foster the development of remote regions and at one time served some 30 communities but today flies to only 10 airports; Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) and Mar del Plata (MDQ) in the province of Buenos Aires, Bariloche (BRC), Comodoro Rivadavia (CRD) and Puerto Madryn (PMY) in northern Patagonia, Calafate (FTE), Rio Turbio (RYO), Rio Gallegos (RGL), Rio Grande (RGA), and Ushuaia (USH) in southern Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego.
