While the giant rental aircraft GECAS, a subsidiary of the General Electric Group, traditionally favors aircraft powered by General Electric, it would have ordered 25 Airbus including aircraft powered by Rolls-Royce, rival of GE, did we learned from sources close to the file.
Twelve Airbus A330neo, of which Rolls-Royce is the only engine supplier, would thus be included in this order. The thirteen other devices are A321XLR.
No comments could be obtained from Airbus and GE.
If this order is confirmed, it would act as a major boost for the A330neo program being repaired after a period of sales at half mast, punctuated by several cancellations.
