Ecuadorian airline AeroGal has unveiled its first Airbus A320-200 at a ceremony in Quito, the first of three of the type to be delivered in 2010 as the carrier starts its fleet renewal programme.
AeroGal’s A320 seats 150 passengers in a two-class configuration and will be operated on domestic and international routes. The airline flies more than 100,000 passengers a month to many of Ecuador’s top destinations including Quito, Guayaquil, Galapagos, Cuenca and Manta, as well as to Bogota and New York.
“For AeroGal, the arrival of our first A320 marks a new era in Ecuadorian aviation,” remarked Gabriela Sommerfeld, president of AEROGAL. “We are convinced that these new and modern aircraft, arriving direct from the assembly line, will help AeroGal grow and expand its brand internationally.”
