To my information they have
CP-2377 (still active??????)
plus soon 3C-HAC and LV-VGF
Sorry another question, whats REGIONAL by AeroSur? a new company, a lo-co division??
-2423 has been sitting in EZE
for over a year. She and sister -2424 were earmarked for the joint Argentine-Bolivian venture Aero Regional (founded on the ashes of TAN Neuquén, I believe) which never really got off the ground. For mysterious reasons, "Regional" stickers were applied to CP
-2447 (which still operates for AeroSur), but I gather they are fairly meaningless. CP
-2424 rejoined AeroSur's active fleet earlier this year.
-2431, to the best of my knowledge, has been stored at VVI since May 2005, awaiting a C or D-Check which is probably more costly than flying in another ex-MX 722 from Mexico.
-2377, the -100, was retired in February 2005, if I recall, and is also sitting at VVI.
Former Lapa LV
-VGF will not be delivered as corrosion was found in her wingspar. The aircraft, Lapa's last major asset, has been sitting in a hangar in AEP
with her tail protruding since February 2003, painted in Lapa's final colour scheme that never saw the light of day, which was very similar to AeroSur's (in preparation for the Bolivian airline's rescue of Lapa which in the end never took place).
AeroSur definitely have a 2nd 732 in service right now, registered CP
-2476 (photo available on pp.net), though whether or not it is the former 3C
-HAC I am not 100% sure (doesn't look like it's from 1969, does it?).
So AeroSur's active fleet is currently:
4 x B727-200Adv. (CP
-2422, 2424, 2447, 2462)
2 x B737-200Adv. (CP
1 x B757-200 (N753NA, leased-in)
Plus the touristic DC-3...
