CFM International said Tuesday that it finalized an agreement with AirAsia Group Bhd. (5099.KU) for the purchase of 200 LEAP-1A engines to power the Malaysian airline's 100 Airbus A321neo planes.
AirAsia has also expanded its 20-year rate-per-flight-hour agreement with CFM to encompass its entire fleet of 808 LEAP-1A engines for a combined total value of $23.1 billion at list price, CFM said.
The airplane order and intent to purchase the engines were announced in July 2016, CFM said. Under RPFH agreements, CFM Services guarantees maintenance costs for AirAsia's LEAP-1A engines on a dollar per engine flight hour basis, it said.
CFM International is a joint venture between General Electric Co.'s (GE) aviation subsidiary and Safran SA's (SAF.FR) engines division.
