Boliviana de Aviación takes delivery of the first two Airbus A330-200s

Aircraft leased by BoA will make routes to Europe and the United States replacing the Boeing 767

Bolivia’s state-owned airline, Boliviana de Aviación (BoA) presented its first two Airbus A330-200s at Viru Viru International Airport in Santa Cruz de La Sierra on May 5.

The aircraft, obtained through leasing, will be used on the South American carrier’s long-haul routes in Europe and the USA.

The CP-3208 and CP-3209 jets are between nine and ten years old and originally flew for Virgin Australia.

BoA will receive three first-generation A330s to replace the older Boeing 767-300ERs.

The airline, which once flew with four 767 jets, currently has only one aircraft of the type in service and that will soon be withdrawn.

According to Airbus, the A330-200 selected by BoA are configured with 278 seats. The manufacturer will also provide training for crew and maintenance technicians through the Entry-Into-Service (EIS) program.

BoA also hired Airbus Flight Hour Services (FHS) to monitor the A330 fleet. The multi-year hourly maintenance contract covers integrated component services, including Viru Viru Airport parts inventory and repair services.

Traditional Boeing customer, this is the first time that BoA incorporates an Airbus jet into its fleet.

In the past, between 2003 and 2004, the Bolivian company operated an A330-220 via wet-lease supplied by Hi Fly.
