Singapore Airlines (SIA) has made an additional order for 22 GE9X engines to power its fleet of Boeing 777-9 aircraft.

The order, which includes a 12-year GE TrueChoice™ services contract, is valued at U.S.$2.8 billion at list price.

Singapore Airlines has a total of 31 Boeing 777-9 aircraft on order and is scheduled to be the first airline in the Asia Pacific region to operate this new generation widebody aircraft.

In 2017, the airline had placed an initial order for 40 GE9X engines.

“Singapore Airlines has been a long-standing customer and we are proud to continue to grow our relationship,” said GE9X program general manager Mike Hoffmeister. “The GE9X engine offers a combination of power and fuel efficiency that is unmatched in its class.”

Lau Hwa Peng, Senior Vice President, Engineering, Singapore Airlines, said: “The cutting-edge technologies that have gone into the Boeing 777-9 and the GE9X engines will help SIA to increase our operating efficiencies, lower our fuel burn, and materially reduce our carbon emissions.”

According to Boeing, the 777-9 will be one of largest and most efficient twin-engine jet, delivering 10 per cent better fuel use, emissions and operating costs than any aircraft in its class.

The GE9X is infused with the latest technology from GE’s toolbox, including heat-resistant Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) materials, additively-manufactured parts and lean-burn combustion that helps improve fuel efficiency.

With an overall pressure ratio of 60:1, the GE9X engine has the highest pressure ratio of any commercial aircraft engine in service.
