China’s CDB Leasing Places US$1.26 Bn for CFM Engines

CDB Leasing has selected CFM LEAP-1A engines to power 100 per cent of its first batch of next generation single-aisle aircraft orders. The firm engine order is valued at US$1.26 billion at list price and deliveries are scheduled between 2018 and 2021.
The President of CDB Leasing was quoted saying, “We believe our customers will benefit greatly from operating the highly efficient, reliable LEAP-1A engines. What we have seen of the engine’s performance in commercial service so far has given us great confidence that it is the right engine for our new single aisle aircraft and will provide the operating economics our customers expect, that will substantially reduce emissions which is consistent with CDB Leasing’s Green Growth core value.”
While, Jean-Paul Ebanga, President and CEO of CFM International said, “CFM is committed to providing our best support to our operators and leasing company customers, to support their goals of providing passengers with the highest quality air travel.”
The LEAP-1A engine entered commercial service on August 2, 2016. A total of 10 aircraft have been delivered to date and the in-service fleet has logged nearly 3,000 flights to date. The engine is delivering the promised 15 per cent improvement in fuel efficiency, along with an equivalent reduction in CO2 emissions; a 50 per cent margin to new emissions regulations; a dramatically lower noise signature; and CFM’s industry-leading reliability and low overall operating costs.
