Pending TUI shareholder approval, the order is valued at $1.56 billion U.S. at list price. The carrier also has options on 60 additional LEAP-powered 737 aircraft.

TUI Travel is scheduled to begin taking delivery in 2018.

“The LEAP engine will provide outstanding fuel efficiency, along with best-in-class reliability and operating economics,” said Peter Long, Chief Executive, TUI Travel. "That makes is a great fit for the 737 MAX and for our operations. We look forward to welcoming this new engine into our fleet.”

“TUI Travel is a long-time customer; we have worked together for more than 25 years,” said Gael Meheust, vice president of Sales for CFM International. “We are obviously very pleased to enter this exciting new phase with them.”

CFM International (CFM) set aggressive technical target for LEAP and testing to date confirms that the engine is meeting those goals. Compared to today’s best engines, LEAP will provide TUI Travel with 15 percent better engine fuel efficiency, which equates to an equal reduction in CO2 emissions; a 50 percent margin compared to today’s oxides of nitrogen (NOx) requirements; and meet the newly announced 2018 ICAO noise requirements with significant margin, all with CFM’s legendary reliability and comparable maintenance costs.

LEAP is a product of CFM International (CFM), a 50/50 joint company between Snecma (Safran) and GE and the world’s leading supplier of commercial aircraft engines.

It serves more than 30 million customers in over 31 source markets.
