Cargolux & GE Aerospace enter long term agreements

GE Aerospace & Cargolux has announced that they have entered into a long-term support agreement for the GE9X powering Cargolux’s new fleet of Boeing 777-8 freighters.

The agreement includes a multi-year GE TrueChoice service agreement as well as the order of two spare engines.

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.”
