The CFM56 success story

CFM International, a 50/50 joint company between Safran Aircraft Engines and GE, develops, produces and markets CFM56® engines, which now power some 13,400 single-aisle commercial jetliners worldwide. Renowned for its unparalleled reliability and low cost of ownership, the CFM56 is the best-selling engine in the history of aviation.

Setting the standard for single-aisle commercial jet engines

With more than 33,000 delivered to date, CFM56® engines mainly power single-aisle commercial jets from Airbus and Boeing. The CFM56®, developing 18,500 to 33,000 lb of thrust, sets the standard in this market. It owes its impressive success to exceptional performance and reliability, the result of the two partners' technical excellence. The CFM56® offers dispatch reliability approaching 100%, along with unrivaled time "on-wing" (without removal for servicing) – advantages that help significantly reduce operating costs. To ensure top dispatch reliability for all customers, CFM continues the volume production of spare parts for these engines.
