The February 18 order brings the total number of 767s ordered by the LAN Airlines group to 33.

Chile’s LAN Airlines has ordered three additional Boeing 767-300ERs in a deal which Boeing values at $493 million at today’s list prices.

The February 18 order brings the total number of 767s ordered by the LAN Airlines group to 33. Aircraft are operated by Chile’s LAN Airlines, LAN Cargo and group carrier LAN Peru. The LAN Airlines group currently operates an owned and leased 767 fleet of 28 767-300ERs and 11 767-300F freighters.

“This order for additional 767s builds on the long-standing relationship between Boeing and LAN,” says 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.”

LAN Airlines' order on February 18, 2011 for three more Boeing 767-300ERs increased to 33 the total number of 767s ordered by the carrier. As of that date, LAN’s fleet of owned and leased 767s consisted of 28 767-300ER passenger aircraft and 11 767-300F freighters

Boeing’s 767 family of twin-aisle commercial jets is sized between the manufacturer’s single-aisle 737 Next-Generation family and the twin-aisle 777 family.

“The versatility, comfort, range and increased payload capabilities continue to make the 767 a staple in the fleets of today’s leading airlines,” says Dailey. “The 767 has benefited from years of technological improvements for greater efficiency and passenger comfort.”

Boeing says LAN has used the manufacturer’s product advancements to enhance operational efficiency in its long-haul fleet and increase passenger comfort. Improvements which LAN has adopted for its 767s include the Boeing Signature Interior.

The Boeing 767 family includes three passenger models – the 767-200ER, 767-300ER and 767-400ER – and the medium-widebody 767-300F freighter, which is based on the 767-300ER fuselage.
