Aerolineas Argentinas taking A340-500s
The aircraft was recently part of the fleet operating the world’s longest scheduled flights, from Singapore to both New York Newark, and Los Angeles International. Singapore Airlines is retiring the fleet and the routes, however.
Aerolineas is adding the type to replace its older A340-200s, and to operate alongside the -300s it operates. It will eventually fly a number of -500 models.
