Air France-KLM selects General Electric's GEnx-1B engine to power its Boeing 787 fleet

fuel consumption reduction and less CO2 emissions

Air France-KLM has finalized an agreement with General Electric and has selected the GEnx-1B engine to power its fleet of Boeing 787-9*. The first aircraft will be delivered to KLM in October 2015 and to Air France in January 2017. The joint selection of engine for Air France and KLM's Boeing 787-9 enables the Group to benefit from significant synergies.

The agreement also includes the signature of a partnership between General Electric and Air France Industries KLM Engineering & Maintenance on the maintenance of the GEnx engine.

The GEnx-1B engine will contribute to the operational performance of the Boeing 787-9 as it contributes to the fuel consumption reduction and gives rise to a 15% reduction in the aircraft's CO2 emissions.

The design of this engine also provides significant reduction in noise and NOx emissions, therefore ensuring in advance the compliance with standards to be implemented in the coming years.

* December 2011, Air France-KLM placed a firm order for 25 Boeing 787-9 with the American aircraft manufacturer, with another 25 on option as well as a firm commitment for 12 aircraft on lease from ILFC.
