BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA — On Saturday, May 20, an Airbus A330 registered as LV-KHT, operated by Aerolineas Argentinas, departed from Marana Airport, situated roughly 12.4 miles north of Tucson, Arizona. 

The plane is destined to become the ninth wide-body aircraft in the airline's fleet.

The A330-243 LV-KHT is expected to land at Ezeiza Airport in Buenos Aires on the morning of Sunday, May 21, where it will undergo necessary approval procedures by the National Civil Aviation Administration.

This particular A330 is one of two long-haul aircraft that the airline plans to incorporate in the near term. The aim is to rebuild a fleet of 10 wide-body aircraft. Both of the incoming aircraft have previously been in service for South African Airways.

Additionally, Aerolineas Argentinas has plans to incorporate at least three Boeing 737 MAX aircraft and a second specialized cargo plane, a 737-800 BCF, which is currently also on its way to Buenos Aires.
