Aerolineas Argentinas will be retiring its entire A340 fleet as it completed the final revenue flight of one of its last two remaining A340s on 9th December.
The airline had 13 A340s and still has one operational A340-300 registered LV-FPU, which will be retired soon.
Airbus ceased production of A340s in 2011, after building 380 aircraft of which 377 jets were delivered to airlines.
The first flight of A340 was on 25 October 1991; 28 years ago, and Lufthansa and Air France placed the A340 into service in March 1993.
Lufthansa, the biggest operator of the A340, acquired 62 aircraft, and continues to operate 32 -300 and -600 series variants as of June 2019.
Aerolineas Argentinas will be replacing the A340s with Airbus A350s or Boeing 787s
