Aircastle delivers one A330-200 to Aerolíneas Argentinas

Aircastle has delivered one Airbus A330-200 aircraft on long-term lease to Aerolíneas Argentinas, the first of two deliveries which will support Aerolíneas’ fleet modernization.  This aircraft is a modern wide-body configured to meet Aerolíneas Argentinas’ long-haul requirements and features the airline’s new cabin interior with lie-flat seats in business class.  It will be used to replace older, less fuel-efficient aircraft.  A second Airbus A330-200 is scheduled to be delivered in January 2017.

Isela Costantini, Aerolíneas’ CEO, stated, “This transaction is historical for Aerolíneas due to the unprecedented conditions reached.  The effort of a great team, as well, allows us today to celebrate the arrival of this new group of Airbus A330-200 aircraft, which maintains our focus on sustainability and allows us to transport more passengers and offer a better service every day.”
