TAM, already the largest Airbus operator in Latin America, signed a contract for 12 A319s, 16 A320s, three A321s and six A330s that brings the number of A320 family aircraft on firm order to 56. It also took 12 options. The deal finalizes an MOU signed in June (ATWOnline, June 29). TAM currently operates 14 A319s, 48 A320s and 10 A330-200s. The new purchase closely follows its first Boeing order, which comprises four 777-300ERs (ATWOnline, Nov. 2).
