IndiGo Selects CFM International LEAP-1A Engines For its A320 Neo Aircrafts

Airline major IndiGo announced on Friday that it has selected CFM International ‘LEAP-1A’ engines to power its fleet of 310 new Airbus family of aircraft which will be delivered from 2023 onwards. These aircraft belong to different categories, including A320neo, A321neo, and A321XLR. The agreement includes 620 new installed engines and associated spare engines, as well as a long-term, multi-year service agreement.

In 2019, IndiGo had selected LEAP-1A engines and signed a long-term service agreement for engines to power 280 A320neo family aircraft.

Consequently, the new agreement secures the LEAP-1A engine and its long-term service agreements for a total of 590 IndiGo A320neo family aircraft.

Currently, the airline is operating seven A320neo and 15 A321neo aircraft with LEAP-1A engines.

“This is a pivotal milestone that reflects our long-standing commitment to rapidly strengthen our network, both domestically and internationally," said Ronojoy Dutta, Chief Executive Officer of IndiGo.
