GE’s Record Jet Engine Agreements At Dubai Air Show

At Sunday’s opening day of the Dubai Air Show, GE Aviation received $26 billion (USD list price) in jet engine orders and services agreements for wide-body Boeing aircraft from three leading airlines in the Middle East.

Collectively, Emirates, Qatar Airways, and Etihad Airways ordered 450 of the new GE9X engine now under development for the new Boeing 777X. GE also received orders for GEnx engines for the Boeing 787 and GE90 engines for the Boeing 777. The airline engine orders:

EMIRATES:

With the commitment by Emirates airlines for 150 Boeing 777X twin-engine aircraft, GE Aviation has secured its largest ever commercial jet engine award from an airline.

Among the world’s fastest growing airlines, Emirates has committed to acquiring 300 GE9X engines for its new 777X fleet. The agreement for the GE9X engines is worth more than $11 billion (USD) list price.

Emirates is already the world’s largest operator of the highly successful GE90-powered Boeing 777-300ERs, with a fleet of 135 aircraft. Emirates also operates the largest fleet of A380s powered by the GP7200 engine produced by the Engine Alliance, a joint company of GE Aviation and Pratt & Whitney.

But the relationship between GE Aviation and Emirates over the past decade has extended beyond the delivery and support of jet engines. GE has been integral to the construction of Emirates’ expanding engine overhaul capability both in the Middle East and Asia.

“We are pleased to expand upon our strong relationship with GE Aviation for this 777X aircraft order of great strategic importance to our airline,” said H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, chairman and chief executive of Emirates Airline & Group.

“The confidence placed by Emirates in GE Aviation is almost overwhelming,” said David Joyce, president and CEO of GE Aviation. “Emirates is critical in enabling GE to demonstrate and improve upon its high-thrust engine technologies. The success in service of the GE90-powered 777-300ER paved the way for the industry’s enthusiasm for the GE9X-powered 777X. And Emirates has been there for the whole remarkable journey.”
