Airbus and GECAS announced the 60-aircraft order on June 15, the first day of the 51st Paris Air Show.

GECAS has selected CFM International’s LEAP-1A engine for all 60 Airbus A320neo-family aircraft in its latest order. GE Aviation is a 50 per cent partner in the CFM International joint venture, SAFRAN subsidiary Snecma beng the other partner.

CFM International values the engine order at $1.77 billion U.S. at list price.

This new order brings the total number of A320-family aircraft ordered by GECAS to 465, including 120 A320neo-family jets.

“The A320neo Family is the ideal solution for our customers who are seeking a product which offers them both attractive operating economics and reliable technology,” says Norman Liu, president and CEO of GECAS. “We see this fuel-efficient aircraft as a mainstay in our single-aisle portfolio for the years to come.”

Including the June 15 order from GECAS, Airbus has won firm orders for more than 3,800 A320neo-family jets, from 72 customers.
