Introducing the power behind the sky-high success of European LCC easyJet: CFM engines. That’s right, easyJet has chosen us as its engine supplier, and we are thrilled to provide 314 engines to power their fleet of 157 Airbus aircraft. And that’s not all – we’ve also secured pricing for an additional 200 engines to support their future expansion.
This isn’t the first time easyJet has turned to us for their engine needs. In fact, our partnership dates all the way back to 1995. So, when they say they trust us to keep their planes running smoothly, they really mean it.
Now, let’s talk about the real star of the show – the Airbus order. 56 A320neo and 101 A321neo aircraft are set to join easyJet’s fleet, and they’ll all be powered by our state-of-the-art CFM LEAP-1A engines. These engines are not only more fuel-efficient, delivering up to a 30% improvement in efficiency, but they also significantly reduce noise pollution, making them a win-win for both easyJet and the environment.
In the words of easyJet’s chief executive, Johan Lundgren, “This agreement for more than 300 engines will provide important environmental benefits through a significant improvement in fuel efficiency and a reduction in noise.” These are big wins for easyJet, and we’re proud to be by their side for this milestone.
And let’s not forget Gaël Méheust, president and CEO of CFM International, who shares easyJet’s commitment to sustainability. “We are proud to embark on a new journey with easyJet, a trusted partner that shares our ambition to build more sustainable air travel,” he said.
So, the next time you step on board an easyJet flight, just remember that the powerful, efficient, and sustainable engines propelling you through the sky are all thanks to CFM and our unwavering commitment to excellence.
