CFM International has just won a contract worth 1.3 billion dollars. Jazeera Airways has decided to sign a long-term RPFH (rate per flight hour) contract with the engine manufacturer, entrusting it with engine maintenance for its A320neo fleet.

Jazeera Airways is planning to bring twenty A320neos into service, four of which have already been delivered. The agreement with CFMI therefore covers the whole fleet, along with five spare engines. The Franco-American company will be taking care of the Kuwaiti airline's LEAP-1A fleet, guaranteeing it a fixed flying hour rate.

The Kuwaiti airline also operates nine A320s with CFM56 engines, which were already being serviced by CFMI.

"The LEAP engine is a real asset for our day to day operations in a difficult environment, and we are planning to bring in others over the coming months. We have been very satisfied with the reliability and first-level support that CFM has been providing us over the years, and so we are delighted to extend our relationship with this new agreement", said Rohit Ramachandran, the carrier's CEO.
