CFM International says it booked orders for a total of 3,344 engines in 2017 — 474 CFM56 engines and 2,870 LEAP engines — valued at more than $46bn at list price.
CFM International announced in Singapore that orders for the company's two product lines achieved near-record levels in 2017. The GE-Safran JV booked orders for a total of 3,344 engines, including 474 CFM56 engines (commercial, military and spares) and 2,870 LEAP engines (including commitments and spares). The orders are valued at more than $46bn at list price.
The LEAP engine has logged more than 14,270 total engine orders and commitments (excluding options) at a value of more than $206bn at list price since 2011.
Total CFM production continued at historic rates, with the company delivering a total of 1,444 CFM56 engines and 459 LEAP engines in 2017.
As the company continues the transition from CFM56 to LEAP production, the total number of CFM56 engines produced will continue to drop, with the full transition expected by the year 2020, at which time the company expects to be producing more than 2,000 LEAP engines per year.
Also in Singapore, the company announced that Royal Brunei Airlines had selected the LEAP-1A engine for seven new Airbus A320neos ordered in 2014 and scheduled to begin delivery later this year.
