Aerolineas Argentinas has received its first Airbus A330-200, the first of four A330s that will join the airline's fleet by the end of the year.
The SkyTeam carrier is leasing the aircraft from ILFC in a deal announced at the Paris air show in June, as part of its overall fleet renewal plan.
Aerolineas has said that it will use the A330 to resume its Buenos Aires-New York route, which it suspended in 2008.
The new A330, registration LV-FNI, is configured with 24 seats in business class and 248 in economy.
Aerolineas also plans to add two more Airbus A340s by the end of the year. The airline previously told Flightglobal that the A340s will replace two of the same type, which it plans to retire from its operating fleet.
It now operates 10 A340s and 26 Boeing 737s, Flightglobal's Ascend Online database shows.
