China Airlines Orders GEnx Engines to Power 787 Fleet

China Airlines has ordered, today at Paris Airshow, 17 GEnx-1B engines, and spares to power its growing fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliner commercial jets. The order includes a comprehensive services agreement, as the airline has been a GE Aerospace customer since 1999. 


The company currently operates a fleet of 87 aircraft, including 66 Passenger Jets and 21 Freighters. The GEnx-1B engine family has nearly 50 million flight hours since 2011 and is the fastest-selling, high-thrust engine in GE history. 


The GEnx-1B powers two out of every three 787 aircraft in service and provides a 1.4% fuel burn savings for the typical 787 mission, equating to $300,000 per airplane per year in fuel savings.

The added fuel savings enable more than 2 million fewer pounds of CO2 per aircraft annually. GEnx uses lightweight durable materials and advanced design processes to reduce weight, improve performance, and lower maintenance, making it the best engine choice for long-haul flights.
