Since its creation in 1974, CFM International has become one of the world’s leading suppliers of jet engines for commercial airplanes. CFM engines set the industry standard for technical innovation, reliability and cost of ownership.
CFM is a 50/50 joint company between Snecma (Safran) and GE. It develops, produces and sells the CFM56® product line, the best-selling jet engine in the commercial aviation history and a leader in the single-aisle aircraft segment. This longstanding joint company, unprecedented in the aviation industry, is nurtured by the complementary capabilities and cultures of the two parent companies. Building on this success, GE and Snecma have extended their partnership to the year 2040 and are currently developing the LEAP® engine, which will power the next generation of single-aisle commercial aircraft.
By capitalizing on the powerful expertise and the world-class industrial organization of its parent companies, CFM consistently develops innovative solutions and delivers products offering outstanding reliability. Customer satisfaction is an integral part of the company’s strategy and CFM delivers world-class services and optimized cost of ownership to keep its customers satisfied. Along with the new LEAP engine, CFM has developed even more cost-effective packages to support operators and keep CFM56 engines running efficiently.
