OCEANAIR (AVIANCA) pide 7 A330-200 y 21 A319/A320
OceanAir places $2.65 billion order for seven A330-200s, 21 A319s/A320s
Brazil's OceanAir placed a firm order for seven A330-200s, 14 A319s and seven A320s collectively valued at $2.65 billion, Airbus said.
Deliveries will begin in 2009. OceanAir is owned by Synergy Group, also parent of Colombia's Avianca. Synergy Chairman German Efromovich told reporters in Sao Paulo yesterday that he wants to grow OceanAir's domestic market share to 15% by 2010 from 2% currently and compete more directly with Gol and TAM and believes the 21 A320 family aircraft will help achieve that goal.
But the order also signals a commitment to international operations, with OceanAir planning to deploy the A330s on currently operated routes to Los Angeles, Mexican destinations and Luanda. It plans to use the aircraft to launch service to Europe as well, Efromovich said.Airbus said the order brings total firm orders for its aircraft in Latin America to 410.
