• Places first order the LEAP-1A for Airbus A320neo
• Expands CFM56-5B fleet on A320neo

The order, which is comprised of 10 LEAP-1A-powered Airbus A320neo and 10 CFM56-5B-powered A320ceo aircraft, is valued at $460 million U.S. at list price.

Robert Martin, managing director and chief executive officer of BOC Aviation, said,“This is our first order for engines for A320neo aircraft. This new order reinforces our customers’ satisfaction with CFM56-powered A320 aircraft as a reliable airframe and engine combination, and marks our confidence in the CFM LEAP engine.”

“We are pleased BOC Aviation has chosen to power its A320neo aircraft with the LEAP engine,” said Jean-Paul Ebanga, president and CEO of CFM. “This engine will prove to be a real asset for both BOC and for its customers. We also appreciated their continued confidence in the CFM56-5B engine.”

“We have a great, long-standing relationship with the BOC team,” said Kevin McAllister, vice president of sales for CFM parent company GE Aviation. “We are honored to have been a part of their success in the past and look forward to strengthening that relationship even further as they introduce LEAP-powered aircraft into their portfolio.”

The foundation of the LEAP engine is heavily rooted in advanced aerodynamics and materials technology development programs. The engine is designed to provide 15 percent better fuel consumption and an equivalent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to today’s best CFM engine, along with a 50 percent reduction in oxides of nitrogen emissions, and up to a 75 percent reduction in the engines noise footprint. All this technology brings with it CFM’s legendary reliability and low maintenance costs.

The CFM56-5B is the engine of choice for the Airbus A320 family and is popular with major airlines, low-cost carriers, and leasing companies alike. More than 3,250 CFM56-5B engines have been delivered to date to operators around the globe. Primary factors behind the engine’s broad-based market acceptance include this industry’s best reliability, durability, low cost of ownership, and world-class customer and product support. The CFM56-5B is the only engine that can power every model of the A320 family, from the small A318 up to the A321, with the same bill of materials.
