SAS Signs LOI for Long-Term LEAP Services Agreement

  • 12-year term valued at $180 million U.S.

SAS today announced that it has signed a Letter of Intent with CFM International for the long-term support of its advanced LEAP-1A engines.  In 2011, the airline selected the engine to power 30 firm Airbus A320neo aircraft and hold options on 11 additional airplanes.

Under the terms of the 12-year Rate Per Flight Hour Agreement (RPFH), valued at $180 million U.S., CFM will guarantee maintenance costs on a dollar per engine flight hour basis.


SAS, the multi-national carrier of Sweden, Norway and Denmark, operates scheduled flights to nearly 100destinations throughout Scandinavia, Europe, Asia, and the U.S. with a fleet of 140 aircraft.   The SAS currently operates a fleet of nearly 100 CFM-powered aircraft and owns a total of nearly 200 CFM56 engines.  As a major European airline, SAS has long been at the forefront of adopting technologies that reduce the impact of aviation on the environment, as well as choosing efficient engines to power its fleet.
