EVERETT, Wash., Feb. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) announced today that Chile's LAN Airlines ordered three additional 767-300ER airplanes valued at $493 million at today's list prices. Today's order brings the total number of 767s ordered from LAN to 33.
"This order for additional 767s builds on the long-standing relationship between Boeing and LAN," said Marlin Dailey, vice president of Sales & Marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "LAN is one of the world's premier airlines and we are happy to help them expand and grow their long-haul fleet."
The 767 family of airplanes is sized between the single-aisle 737 Next-Generation and the twin-aisle 777. As one of the most fuel-efficient airplanes in operation today, the 767 offers improved environmental performance and operating economics over competing jetliners.
"The versatility, comfort, range and increased payload capabilities continue to make the 767 a staple in the fleets of today's leading airlines," said Dailey. "The 767 has benefited from years of technological improvements for greater efficiency and passenger comfort."
LAN's fleet currently consists of 28 767-300ERs and 11 767-300 freighters. The airline has used Boeing's product advancements to drive operational efficiencies into their long-haul fleet and increase passenger comfort including the passenger-pleasing Boeing Signature Interior.
The Boeing 767 family is a complete family of clean, quiet, fuel-efficient airplanes that provide maximum market versatility in the 200- to 300-seat market. The Boeing 767 family includes three passenger models -- the 767-200ER, 767-300ER and 767-400ER -- and a medium-widebody freighter, which is based on the 767-300ER fuselage.
