IndiGo Opts for CFM LEAP-1A Engines on 310 New Airbus Aircraft

: May 27, 2021 - : 12:34 pm

Indian low-cost carrier IndiGo will use CFM International’s  LEAP-1A engine to power its fleet of 310 new Airbus A320s, A321s, and A321XLRs.

The agreement between the two companies include 620 newly installed engines, a multi-year service agreement, and associated spare engines.

In 2019, IndiGo had signed a deal for LEAP-1A engines and a long-term service agreement for an order of 280 A320neo-family aircraft. The airline is currently operating seven A320neo and 15 A321neo with LEAP-1A engines. The agreement secures LEAP-1A engines and service agreements for the carrier’s A320neo-family aircraft that will be delivered from 2023 onwards.

“We are pleased to extend our partnership with CFM for our next batch of Airbus A320neo, A321neo and A321 XLR aircraft,” said Riyaz Peermohamed, Chief Aircraft Acquisition and Financing Officer of IndiGo. “The introduction of the CFM LEAP engines in our fleet will allow us to maintain our strong focus on lowering operating costs and delivering fuel efficiency with high standards of reliability.”

“We are incredibly honored by IndiGo’s renewed trust in CFM,” said Gaël Méheust, president and CEO of CFM International. “We are fully committed to helping IndiGo optimize its operations by providing them with the industry-leading asset utilization, fuel efficiency, and overall cost of ownership.”
