Learn about LATAM’s complete aircraft fleet

Marcelo Cáceres

Learn about the characteristics of the LATAM aircraft family that crosses the skies all over the world

 

A319

Fly-by-wire

The A319 is a single-aisle, short- to medium-range aircraft with fly-by-wire: a navigation system that uses an electronic interface instead of manual flight controls.

 

Planes

Every two seconds, an A320 family aircraft (A318, A319, A320, and A321) lands or takes off around the world. In June 2017, 1,458 A319 were delivered and 27 airliners are on firm order.

A320 NEO

Seating

The aircraft has 174 18”-wide seats and Airbus’s Space-Flex cabin configuration.

 

Engines

The two Pratt & Whitney PW1127-G engines are more powerful and efficient: with a 15% fuel consumption reduction compared to the previous model and 50% less noise impact.

A321

Power

The power generated by the A321’s engines can supply 30 apartments.

 

Assembly

It takes nearly a month to assemble an A321. A new aircraft “is born” every seven hours at the Airbus production lines.

 

Specs

Manufacturer – Airbus

Capacity – 220 passengers

Length – 146 ft [44.51 m]

Wingspan – 117.7 ft [35.9 m]

B767

Structure

Designed for long-haul flights, it stands out for its capacity, with two central aisles with seven seats in each row. It has a larger wingspan and heavier wings, with flaps and slats on the edges.

 

Efficiency

The airplane uses the winglet technology, which has the function of improving wing aerodynamics by reducing drag during the flight. As a result, fuel consumption is reduced by over 450,000 gallons per year per aircraft, and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are 5% lower.

 

Specs

Manufacturer – Boeing

Capacity – 238 passengers

Length – 180.11 ft [54.9 m]

Wingspan – 156.1 ft [47.6 m]

Height – 51.8 ft [15.8 m]

Maximum takeoff weight – 203 ton [184,000 kg]

Engines – 2 turbofan

LATAM planes – 36

B767-300F

Design

The 767-300F was designed for the transportation of cargo, that’s why it resembles the 767, except for the lack of windows and seats for passengers.

 

Controlled environment

The environmental temperature control system enables the transportation of live animals and perishable goods. Plenty of fresh air is delivered to the cargo areas, and temperatures can be controlled.

 

Specs

Manufacturer – Boeing

Capacity – 15,469 ft3 [438.1 m3]

Length – 180.1 ft [54.9 m]

B777

Landing

Its landing gear is bigger and includes a set of six large tires capable of withstanding a load of up to 32.3 tons [29,294 kg] each, the most resistant among commercial aircraft.

 

Cabin

Its interior is equipped with larger overhead bins and indirect LED lighting.

 

Specs

Manufacturer – Boeing

Capacity – 365 passengers

Length – 242.5 ft [73.9 m]

B787-8

Cleaner air

The 787-8 cabin has better air quality due to its purification system, which removes gaseous contaminants and reduces symptoms, like throat irritation, caused by low humidity.

 

More stability

The Smoother Ride technology has smart sensors that detect turbulence and adjust the plane’s control surfaces, reducing dizziness and other discomforts caused by this type of situation.
