FLEET UPDATE: Aerolineas Argentinas received its 4th 737 MAX 8 on 25Feb18

Aerolineas Argentinas' fourth 737 MAX 8, LV-HKV (c/n 44294/6807), arrived at Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE) on 25Feb18 on its delivery flight from Boeing Field (BFI) via Punta Cana (PUJ).

Aerolineas is due to receive only one more 737 MAX 8 in 2018 for a total of five of the model with apparently no more on order by the carrier.   


Reader Matias Muse pointed out that Aerolineas Argentinas actually has six more MAX series aircraft on order, for a total of 11, with the option of choosing which model for the remaining six to be delivered, MAX 7, MAX 8, MAX 200, MAX 9 or MAX 10, as noted by the leading British aviation publication, Flight International:


  1. Thank you Matias....I also read 11 on order a couple of months ago but everything I have read since then has said only 5. I think the confusion is because Aerolineas ordered 11 MAX series with the first 5 being MAX 8's but with the airline having the option of choosing different MAX models for the remaining 6, at least according to Flight International:
