• Company the first to order all three LEAP engine models;
• Expands CFM56 portfolio, as well.

CFM values the total engine order at $2 billion U.S. at list price.

In addition to today’s LEAP-1B engine order, BOC Aviation has also placed orders for the LEAP-1A to power Airbus A320neo aircraft and the LEAP-1C engine to power the COMAC C919.

Robert Martin, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of BOC Aviation, said,“We think that the LEAP-1B-powered 737 MAX is a great combination that will bring impressive operating economics to our customers. We know from experience that CFM builds high quality, very reliable engines. This new order reinforces our customers’ satisfaction in what CFM has delivered with the CFM56 product line and our confidence in the new LEAP engine.”

“We are pleased BOC Aviation has chosen to make the LEAP-1B-powered 737 MAX a big part of its portfolio and to further expand its fleet of CFM56 engines,” said Jean-Paul Ebanga, president and CEO of CFM. “We certainly appreciate its continued confidence in our products.”

“We have a great, long-standing relationship with the BOC Aviation team,” said Chaker Chahrour, vice president of Global Sales & Marketing 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.

All of BOC Aviation’s new Next-Generation 737s will be powered by the CFM56-7BE engine, the production configuration introduced in mid-2011. CFM used advanced computer codes and three-dimensional design techniques to improve airfoils in the high- and low-pressure turbines for better engine performance. In addition, the company improved engine durability and reduced parts count to achieve lower maintenance costs. When combined with airplane improvements, the engine provides two percent better fuel efficiency and up to four percent lower maintenance costs.
