Loong Air selects CFM’s LEAP-1A to power new A320neo fleet
China’s Zhejiang Loong Airlines signed an agreement with CFM International to purchase LEAP-1A engines to power nine Airbus A320neo aircraft. CFM values the engine order at US$260m at list price, including spare engines. Zhejiang Loong Airlines, based in Hangzhou in Eastern China, began commercial operations in December 2013 with two CFM56-5B-powered Airbus A320 aircraft and has since added seven additional airplanes to its fleet.
