Travel News Asia 11 October 2005

LAN Airlines has signed a contract with Airbus for the acquisition of 25 A320 Family aircraft plus 15 options. This order confirms LAN's previous announcement of June 2005 and brings their total orders for Airbus aircraft to 59. Deliveries of the newly ordered aircraft are scheduled to begin in 2006. A part of the additional new A318s and A319s will gradually replace LAN's 737-200 fleet.

With this contract LAN becomes the first customer for the A318 powered by the new Pratt & Whitney's PW6000 engine. The PW 6000 engine is due for certification by the end of this year.

The additional A319s and A320s will be powered by the V2500-A5 engine from International Aero Engines.

These new aircraft will be put into service on LANs domestic network in Peru, Chile and Argentina.
