Hey guys,

Well, speculations are over. Santa Barbara made it's first 767-300ER revenue flight yesterday flying CCS-MAD-CCS. Proudly, they published the new on their site, explaining several things I considered important. (sorry for any possible translation mistakes)

(For spanish speakers, here's the site where the article was published: http://www.santabarbaraairlines.com/Noticias.asp)

El moderno equipo fue alquilado a una empresa irlandesa durante 10 días, mientras llega al país otro idéntico con el logotipo de la aerolínea.

"The modern aircraft was leased by an irish company for ten days, while the other identical model arrives with the airline's livery"

So, this means that S3 is using a 767 with another livery?

Detalló que la primera fase del proyecto de modernización de flota implica una inversión de 3 millones de dólares, en la cual se cuenta la sustitución de las unidades, el entrenamiento del personal de vuelo y despacho, repuestos, capacitación de técnicos y mecánicos y el arrendamiento temporal del avión irlandés. Sin embargo, la inversión total para la renovación de equipos y unidades asciende a 6 millones de dólares.

"S3's president declared that the fleet change will imply an inversion of $3 million (for aircraft changes, personal training, maintenance, and the temporal Irish airplane lease). However, the total inversion is estimated to be around $6 million."

That's a lot of money, considering our current situation. I think it was the right decision. Those DC-10s were causing too many problems. Actually, S3's CEO states that these 767s will save 40% compared to the older aircraft.

Entre los planes inmediatos también está la apertura de una ruta hacia Portugal. (...) Estos son de cuerpo amplio y doble pasillo, disponen de 269 puestos cada uno, 7 baños, 3 cabinas y un sistema de entretenimiento.

"We will also open services to Portugal.
These jets are double-aisled, equipped with 269 seats, 7 toilets, 3 cabins and an entertainment system"

So, can we conclude that these aircraft will be equipped with First, Business and Coach, due to their three cabin layout? And how about the "entertainment system"? Do you guys think they're PTVs?

I really want to see these aircrafts soon!. Tomorrow I'm going down to CCS to see if I can spot it. If it really happens that they're using a different 767, I'll be happy enough to see IB A346!

Saludos Amigos!

Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous!

Two minor corrections:

The modern aircraft was leased FROM an Irish company...

It's not inversion, it's investment.

And no, I don't think they'll have PTV's. They're probably drop down screens where they will show "Secuestro Express" to the european tourists!  silly 

Salud! Y que Viva el Cardenales!


Proud to work for Embraer FLL!
