easyJet ordered CFM LEAP-1A engines to power a fleet of 157 Airbus A320neo family aircraft, including 56 A320neo and 101 A321neo, which will be delivered from 2029, along with spare engines and a multi-year services agreement. The aircraft order was announced in December 2023. This order strengthens a successful partnership of more than 25 years between the two companies. easyJet currently operates 257 Airbus A320ceos powered by CFM56-5B engines and 69 A320neos with LEAP-1A engines.

Johan Lundgren, CEO of easyJet, commented: “We are very pleased to have signed a deal with CFM, following a competitive selection process. This agreement for more than 300 engines will provide important environmental benefits through a significant improvement in fuel efficiency and a reduction in noise as well as enable easyJet to continue to affirm its leading position at Europe’s primary airports. easyJet has a long history working with CFM and look forward to continuing to work in partnership in the years to come.” 

Gaël Méheust, president and CEO of CFM International, said: “We are proud to embark on a new journey with easyJet, a trusted partner that shares our ambition to build more sustainable air travel. We remain committed to delivering the very best CFM has to offer in terms of efficiency, reliability and world-class customer support.”

The advanced CFM LEAP engine family provides 15 to 20 percent better fuel consumption and lower CO2emissions, as well as a significant improvement in noise compared to previous generation engines. Since its entry into service in 2016, the LEAP engine has allowed our customers to save more than 30 million tons of CO2.
