WEST CHESTER, Ohio - On August 2, Turkey's Pegasus Airlines became the first airline to operate CFM International's advanced LEAP-1A engine, powering an Airbus A320neo on flights between Istanbul and Antalya. The airline, which has ordered a total of 200 LEAP-1A engines to power A320neo aircraft, has completed more than 1,700 engine flight cycles to date.

The LEAP-1A is providing double-digit improvements in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions compared to today's best CFM engine, along with dramatic reductions in engine noise and exhaust gaseous emissions. All this technology is focused on providing better utilization, including CFM's legendary reliability out of the box; greater asset availability; enhanced time on wing margins to help keep maintenance costs low; and minimized maintenance actions, all supported by sophisticated analytics that enable CFM to provide tailored, predictive maintenance over the life of the product.

SINGAPORE - Boeing has an agreement with Japan Airlines to extend its partnership with the company to provide spare parts solutions for another 10 years.

The renewed Japan Airlines agreement for Boeing’s GoldCare Expendables, formerly Integrated Materials Management (IMM), is an expendable parts service solution that builds on more than a decade of success. The partnership reduces the airline’s operating costs by having Boeing manage a majority of its spare parts inventory, providing items to the airline mechanic as needed. Under the agreement, Boeing will provide the service through 2026.

According to Japan Airlines, Boeing’s exceptional customer support and parts solutions were key factors in the decision to extend the contract.

The Japan Airlines order demonstrates the increased flexibility of Boeing’s parts business, which continues to evolve and improve based on customer needs and requirements.

In 2015, Boeing increased inventory by 35,000 parts and lowered prices on 24,000 parts. In addition, Boeing has nearly doubled stocked parts for out-of-production airplanes and is offering emergent-build capabilities for customers who need to find parts for out-of-production fleet types.
