Boeing Improves Fuel Efficiency in Single Isle Aircraft Market

Boeing Improves Fuel Efficiency in Single Isle Aircraft MarketBoeing is to improve the fuel efficiency in single isle aircraft with the advent of their new 737 engine family.  The new engines will also be available to retrofit into existing 496 aircraft, too.

In a company report, a Boeing representative said, “The re-engined 737 will allow Boeing to continue to deliver the most fuel efficient, most capable airplane with the lowest operating costs in the single-aisle market,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Jim Albaugh. “This, coupled with industry leading reliability and maintainability, is what customers have told us they want. As a result, we are seeing overwhelming demand for this new and improved version of the 737. We are working with our customers to finalize these and other agreements in the weeks and months ahead.”

It is going to take a while for these new improvements to be seen, however, as deliveries of the new engines will not be delivered until sometime in 2017.  CMF International LEAP-1B engines will be supplied in the new 737 family and reportedly provide a 7 percent advantage in operating costs over comparable solutions presented by competing companies.

“Customers tell us they want to improve profitability and fuel efficiency while reducing their environmental footprint,” said Albaugh. “This solution meets all three of those needs.”

In other news, Bob Feldmann has been promoted to VP and GM of the new 737 engine family at Boeing.  Feldmann has 35 years of experience within the aerospace industry and his most recent career accomplishment was leading the surveillance and engagement division at Boeing Military Aircraft.   Some of the projects he has led include EA-18G Growler and the P-8A Poseidon.
