CFM Statement on ALAFCO 737 MAX Order
FARNBOROUGH, England – 10 July 2012 – CFM International is pleased by ALFACO’s commitment to purchase 20 CFM-powered Boeing 737 MAX aircraft and look forward to finalizing this order, along with Boeing, in the very near future. The final order will be valued at $500 million U.S. at list price.
ALAFCO has been a CFM customer for more than a decade.
Boeing selection of the LEAP-1B as the sole powerplant for the new 737 MAX family of re-engined aircraft continues a 30-year relationship between CFM and Boeing; since 1981, CFM engines have been the sole powerplant for all 737 models from the Classic 737-300/-400/-500 to the Next-Generation 737-600/-700/-800/-900/-900ER and the BBJ.
To date, nearly 10,000 737s have been ordered, of which more than 8,800 are powered by CFM.
The LEAP-1B engines incorporate technologies never before seen in the single-aisle aircraft segment that have been optimized for the 737 MAX. The new engine will combine advanced aerodynamic design techniques, lighter, more durable materials, and leading-edge environmental technologies, making it a major breakthrough in engine technology.
