Allegiant Air Orders CFM LEAP-1B Engines, Signs Service Agreement for Boeing 737 MAX Fleet

Business

• Order for up to 200 LEAP-1B engines
• Includes service agreement

WEST CHESTER, OH — 14 January 2021 Allegiant Air has announced the purchase of advanced CFM International LEAP-1B engines to power up to 100 Boeing 737MAX 7 and 737MAX 8 aircraft.

The engine order also includes a service agreement.  The aircraft order was announced by Allegiant on January 5, with delivery expected to begin in 2023. 

Allegiant has been a CFM customer since 2013 and its current fleet of 125 Airbus A319ceo and A320ceo aircraft are all powered by CFM56-5B engines. CFM and Allegiant continue to collaborate to enhance operational capability of Allegiant’s current fleet.

“We have been extremely happy with the CFM engines in our fleet. The economics have been key to our ability to grow while maintaining our cost structure.”
Maury Gallagher, Allegiant chairman and CEO
“We are honored that Allegiant continues to choose CFM as its engine OEM of choice. The LEAP engine will provide the best economics now and support future growth.”
Gaël Méheust, President and CEO of CFM International

CFM’s advanced LEAP engine continues to set new industry standards for fuel efficiency and asset utilization, logging more than 14 million engine flight hours in commercial operation. The fleet is providing better fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions, as well as a significant improvement in noise in this thrust class.

The LEAP-1B engine entered into service on the Boeing 737 MAX in 2017. More than 1,460 LEAP-1B engines have been delivered to some 60 operators worldwide and the fleet has logged approximately three million engine flight hours.
