LATAM Group Nabs 5 More Dreamliners

Group Opts for GEnx Engines in First for South American Market

LATAM Group announced an order for 5 more Boeing 787 Dreamliners, to join up with their current fleet to one day number 46 of the type in all.

LATAM also opted to equip their 787s with GEnx engines from GE Aerospace, becoming the “first airline group in South America" to be so equipped. The Group has come to love the Dreamliners already in service, having purchased 20 more since their pre-2020 peaks, despite the sometimes turbulent market experience felt by carriers around the world. LATAM has charged onwards and upwards, and will ultimately operate 46 Boeing 787s once these newest orders are filled.

“These actions are fully aligned with the commitment to sustainability and brings LATAM closer to the goal of becoming a carbon neutral group by 2050”, said Ramiro Alfonsín, LATAM Airlines Group S.A CFO. “The incorporation of GEnx engines is a decision that provides greater flexibility and options for the expansion of the long-range fleet. Furthermore, increasing the Boeing 787 fleet size will allow the group to operate with two different engine models, known for their cutting-edge technology and reduced environmental impact, in a complementary way.”

"The 787 Dreamliner is perfectly suited to support LATAM group’s sustainability and operations goals with its exceptional performance, flexible route capability and enhanced passenger comfort”, said Mike Wilson, vice president of Latin America and Caribbean Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.  “We look forward to partnering with LATAM group as it connects Latin America with the world and makes a difference in the communities it serves.”
