Airbus A319 For LanChile / LanExpress

Sat Nov 08, 2003 4:54 am


rumours are around among chilean aviation fans that lanChile is due to receive their first Airbus A319 later this year. There are no official statements on that and none of my friends in the chilean aviation industry (at Avant maintenance
, LanChile, ...) know exactly.
However, the actual Airbus order/delivery lists shows LanChilw with orders for two A319.

Can anybody give us some details about that??

Thanks a million.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Hi Mario,

the first Airbus Industrie A319-132 (CC-COU; currently D-AVWL) for LAN Chile is c/n 2089. The aircraft is currently undergoing its final testing at Hamburg-Finkenwerder (XFW). On November 27th the aircraft is expected to be rolled out in full colours with the delivery planned in December.

The second aircraft is c/n 2096 and will be delivered shortly after the first one.

Hope this helps!
