FLEET UPDATE: Aerolineas Argentinas to retire 5 remaining A340's by year-end 2018
Aerolineas Argentinas is due to retire its five remaining A340's by the end of 2018 with the aircraft being replaced in the short term by A330's with a longer term replacement, such as the 787 or A350, unlikely to be ordered prior to 2018 or 2019 due to financing issues.
The aircraft are scheduled to be retired from the Aerolineas fleet as follows:
A340-313X LV-CSF (c/n 128) in February 2017
A340-313X LV-CSX (c/n 373) in March 2017
A340-313X LV-CSD (c/n 123) in December 2017
The above three aircraft flew with Aerolineas for approx. five years having joined the carrier in late 2011 / early 2012.
A340-313X LV-FPV (c/n 193) in September 2018
A340-313X LV-FPU (c/n 170) in November 2018
The above two A340's flew for Aerolineas for about three years having been delivered to the airline in late 2013.
