The aircraft will soon join Southwest Airlines as have at least four other former Aerolineas' 737-700's; LV-CBG (c/n 30235/672), LV-CAM (c/n 30243/919), LV-CBS (c/n 30236/715) and LV-CCR (c/n 30237/730).

Southwest Airlines has been adding many used 737-700's from other airlines recently, including from WestJet, Oman Air, AeroMexico and Transaero.  It plans to acquire at last 83 used 737-700's as an economical way of replacing some of the older aircraft in its fleet, such as its still large fleet of over 100 737-300's and the 717's that left to Delta Air Lines.
