Boeing targets Argentina, Mexico for wide body sales

Boeing has targeted the Latin American market, particularly carriers in Argentina and Mexico for sales of new wide body aircraft, the company said.

The company said Mexico has a relatively strong economy, and Mexican carriers are forming closer ties with foreign airlines.

Boeing said there are sales opportunities in Argentina, particularly to Aerolineas Argentinas. The airline will have several Airbus340s coming off leases in 2018 and will need to replace those aircraft.

The Boeing Company is an aerospace firm that operates in five segments: commercial airplanes; defense, space and security, such as Boeing military aircraft, network and space systems, global services and support and Boeing Capital.
