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

Friday’s order brings the total number of 767s ordered from LAN to 33. The three airplanes will be equipped with the passenger-pleasing Boeing Signature Interior. The Chilean airline’s fleet currently consists of 28 767-300ERs and 11 767-300 freighters.

The 767 airplane is considered one of the most fuel-efficient airplanes in operation. The 767 family of airplanes is sized between the single-aisle 737 Next-Generation and the twin-aisle 777.

“The 767 has benefited from years of technological improvements for greater efficiency and passenger comfort,” added Dailey.

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