Description: CFM International is a 50/50 joint venture between French Snecma Moteurs and American General Electric. The CFM56 family of engines, CFM International main product, is named after General Electric's CF6 and Snecma's M56 engines. The CFM56 engines have been designed to power short-, medium-, and long-range commercial and military aircraft since the first CFM56-1 entered service in 1974. These single-stage turbofans are currently available ranging from 18,500 to 34,000 pounds of thrust and four fan sizes. More than 25,000 CFM56 engines have been delivered to more than 350 customers all over the world.

The CFM56-7 is the latest member of successful CFM56 family of engines. It has a dual annular combustor for low emissions capability and reduced fuel burn through advanced thermodynamic cycle. Its thrust ranges between 18,500 and 27,300 pounds. The CFM56-7 engines provide next generation Boeing 737 aircraft higher levels of reliability, lower fuel consumption, higher thrust and lower maintenance costs than its predecessor the CFM56-3 engine. The first -7 model entered service in 1997 powering a Boeing 737-700. More than 3,000 CFM56-7 engines have been ordered to power the next generation Boeing 737 (-600, -700, -800 and -900) and Boeing business jet as well as 737-based modern military aircraft such as the 737 AEW&C, C-40 Clipper and 737 MMA aircraft.

In early February 2005, CFM International received two important contracts from two carriers Japan Airlines (JAL) and SpiceJet of India. The JAL contract worth $360 million was linked to the purchase of 30 firm order Next-Generation Boeing 737 with options on 10 more jets. The second contract came from India's newest start-up, low-cost carrier SpiceJet which ordered 10 firm order 737-800s with option on 10 more. The 20 firm order engines were valued at $120 million. Both carriers will take delivery of their firsts CFM56-7B powered aircraft in 2006.

Ryanair selected the CFM International CFM56-7 engine to power 70 Boeing 737-800s with options on 70 additional aircraft in February 2005. The firm engine order for approximately 140 engines was valued at $900 million.

On 14 June 2005, CFM International was awarded purchase orders for up to 120 CFM56-7B engines to power 10 B737-800s ordered by Jet Airways; 20 B737s ordered by GECAS; and another 20 B737-700s/-800s ordered by ILFC. The 120 engines estimated value was $600 million.

In June 2005, ILFC placed an order for 20 CFM56-7B-powered Boeing 737-700s/-800s. The engine were valued at $240 million. Jet Airways also purchased 10 Boeing 737-800s powered by the same engine with the engine order valued at $120 million.

On 16 June 2005, Spanish carrier Air Europa ordered 18 Boeing 737-800s plus 12 aircraft options powered by CFM56-7B engines. The engines order was valued at $220 million.

On 29 March 2006 General Electric Commercial Aviation Services (GECAS) placed an order with Boeing for 30 firm and 30 option Boeing Next-Generation 737 valued approximately at $4 billion. The firm aircraft were set to be delivered to GECAS between 2008 through 2010. This contract included the Boeing 737-900ER and 737-800 models powered by CFM56-7B engines valued at $400 million.

On October 11, 2006, California-based Willis Lease Finance Corporation and CFM International announced a purchase agreement on 45 CFM56-5B and CFM-56-7B spare engines worth $540 million. Engine deliveries were scheduled to begin in 2007 and continue through 2011. The contract included an option for an additional 30 engines.
