FLEET UPDATE: Andes Lineas Aereas takes delivery of its first 737-800


Andes Lineas Aereas took delivery of 737-85F, LV-GWL (c/n 30007/746) on 19May17, the first 737-800 in its fleet.  The aircraft was first delivered to South African Airways in 2001 and went on to fly for Firefly and Malaysia Airlines before going to Andes.  It arrived at Andes' home base of Salta (SLA) on 21May17.

LV-GWL joins four MD-80's currently in the Andes fleet with 1-2 more MD-80's and one 737-800 expected to be added before the end of 2017.  Despite the addition of MD-80's to the fleet this year, they are all expected to be replaced by 737-800's during 2018.  

The new aircraft acquisitions will enable the airline to take on several new scheduled routes that are being added to its network under the new liberalized Argentine air transportation policy implemented by Argentine President Mauricio Macri's administration.
