Farnborough 2018: Hongtu Airlines, CFM sign $400m agreements

Yunnan Hongtu Airlines has ordered CFM56-5B engines for three Airbus A320ceo and signed a 12-year Rate Per Flight Hour Agreement (RPFH) to support 24 LEAP-1A engines for its leased A320neo fleet.

Yunnan Hongtu Airlines and CFM International (GE/Safran) have signed an agreement for the purchase of CFM56-5B engines to power three Airbus A320ceo aircraft.

In addition, the airline signed a 12-year Rate Per Flight Hour Agreement (RPFH) to support 24 LEAP-1A engines that will power its leased A320neo fleet. Under the RPFH, CFM will provide maintenance support on a dollar per flight hour basis.

These agreements, which also include the potential purchase of two LEAP-1A and one CFM56-5B spare engines, are valued at a total of $408m at list price.

In other Farnborough news, Safran announced that All Nippon Airways has become the first airline to have connected its Safran flight data management systems to a cloud, rather than servers, through the SITA solution. Thanks to the cloud-connected Cassiopée AGS (Analysis Ground Station), flight data analysis can now be performed for the entire ANA fleet.
