Who could take better care of your LEAPs than CFM International? Well, no-one really, according to SilkAir, who handed over the maintenance of its LEAP-1Bs to the Franco-American engine manufacturer (a joint company between GE and Safran Aircraft Engines), on 10th November.

This is a Rate Per Flight Hour (RPFH) agreement which guarantees engine maintenance costs for a 15-year period.

It covers a total of 80 engines - including six spares - which will power 37 Boeing 737 MAX 8 ordered by the Singaporean regional airline, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines (SIA). The contract amount is estimated at $1 Bn.

Ordered at the end of 2012, the first 737 MAX joined the fleet on 5th October. All aircraft will continue to be delivered until 2024.
