A TrueChoice services extension has also been agreed for Cargolux’s fleet of Boeing 747-8F fleet powered by GEnx-2B engines.

In October, Cargolux revealed plans to replace its ageing 747-400 freighter fleet with an order for 10 Boeing 777-8F aircraft.

“Cargolux is committed to investing in fuel-efficient engines that emit significantly less CO2,” said Richard Forson, Cargolux President and CEO. “GE’s newest engine, the GE9X offers the latest technology which will help our airline enhance sustainability while increasing operational efficiency.”

“We are proud that Cargolux continues to choose GE Aerospace to power its modern, highly-efficient cargo fleet," said Russell Stokes, President and CEO, Commercial Engines and Services for GE. "Our focus remains to provide Cargolux with outstanding engines like the GE9X in terms of technology and performance, as well as world-class support."

The GE9X is the most powerful aircraft engine in history and the quietest GE Aerospace engine ever produced (pounds of thrust per decibel). It offers the lowest NOx emissions in its class.

Cargolux was the launch customer for the GEnx-2B and became the first operator worldwide to fly one million hours with the engine. Compared to GE's CF6 engine, the GEnx engine offers up to 15 percent better fuel efficiency. Like all GE commercial engines, both the GE9X and GEnx are compatible with any approved blend of sustainable aviation fuel and normal jet kerosene.

The TrueChoice suite of engine maintenance offerings incorporate an array of GE capabilities and customizations across an engine's lifecycle. All TrueChoice offerings are underpinned by GE data and analytic capabilities and experience to help reduce maintenance burden and service disruptions for customers.

IHI Corporation, Safran Aircraft Engines, Safran Aero Boosters and MTU Aero Engines AG are participants in the GE9X engine program.
