FLEET UPDATE: LATAM Argentina received its 14th A320 on 19Jun16


LATAM Argentina's 14th A320, LV-GLP (c/n 1355), flew from Santiago (SCL) to Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE) on 19Jun16 and entered service with the carrier three days later on 22Jun16.  

The aircraft was originally delivered to LAN Chile on 11Dec00 where it carried the registration CC-COF until its recent transfer from the parent carrier to its Argentine affiliate.  

LATAM Argentina (formerly LAN Argentina) started service on 08Jun05 with three 737-200's that were joined by two more 200's later that year.  These were replaced between 2006-2008, starting with four A320's in 2006, one in 2007, and five in 2008, but the fleet did not grow beyond these ten aircraft for several years because the carrier was not allowed to bring in any more planes by the ANAC Argentine aviation authority.

Finally, in 2011, two more A320's came over from Chile with one additional aircraft each year in 2014 and 2016 to get to LATAM Argentina's 14-strong A320 fleet today.  The carrier also operates two 767-300's on the Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE) - Miami (MIA) route.
