LAN Airlines Buys 25 Airbus Aircraft

With Options For More

LAN Airlines S.A. announced Wednesday that its Board of Directors authorized the acquisition of 25 Airbus A318 and A319 aircraft. The company also signed up for 15 options for similar aircraft.

Delivery of these aircraft will begin in 2006. LAN estimates that this order will represent an investment of approximately $750 million. These aircraft are in addition to the nine A319 aircraft from LAN's previous order that will be delivered between 2005 and 2008.

LAN and its affiliates will use these aircraft to operate international routes across Latin America, as well as in the Chilean, Peruvian and Argentine domestic markets. A portion of the new Airbus A318 and A319s will also be used to gradually replace LAN's Boeing 737-200 fleet.

Lan operates 56 passenger aircraft and seven freighters based in Latin America. The airline serves destinations worldwide through its own operations and with its code-share partners. Lan is a member of the global airline alliance, "oneworld."
