Argentina's Flybondi adds fifth Boeing 737-800 jet

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA — Flybondi, the first low-cost airline in Argentina, welcomes the new member of its fleet, a Boeing 737-800 NG with registration LV-KCE.

The aircraft arrived at Ezeiza International Airport from Phoenix-Sky Harbor Airport, Arizona on March 17. The plane will start operating revenue flights at the end of this month, after carrying out the corresponding administrative processes and being painted with the airline's official brand colors. 

Before joining Flybondi, the 15 years-old Boeing 737-800 jet was operated by Eurocypria, Air Jamaica, and Caribbean Airlines respectively.

Argentina's budget specialist expects to add more aircraft in the coming months, completing the number of Boeing 737 jets in the fleet to 10 by mid-year. The airline currently operates five Boeing 737-800s since the aircraft with registration LV-HFR was returned to its lessor after contract termination.

Flybondi aims to offer its customers cheaper flights with high-quality international standards.
