SAS signs LOI for long-term LEAP services agreement
SAS has signed a Letter of Intent with CFM International for the long-term support of its advanced LEAP-1A engines. In 2011, the airline selected the engine to power 30 firm Airbus A320neo aircraft and hold options on 11 additional airplanes. Under the terms of the 12-year Rate Per Flight Hour Agreement (RPFH), valued at $180 million U.S., CFM will guarantee maintenance costs on a dollar per engine flight hour basis.
