Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings has signed an agreement with GE Aviation to purchase GEnx-2B engines for its four Boeing 747-8 Freighters along with a 20-year TrueChoice Overhaul agreement, which covers the time and material required to overhaul the GEnx-2B engines. The agreements are valued at more than US$800 million at list price over the life of the service agreement.
“The 747-8F powered with GEnx engines gives us the best and most versatile widebody freighter in the market,” said John W. Dietrich, Atlas Air Worldwide President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our partnership with GE Aviation supports our longstanding focus on leading-edge technology. We look forward to continuing to provide world-class service to our customers.”
Customers have ordered more than 2,500 GEnx engines, making it the fastest-selling high-thrust engine in GE’s history. With the most advanced technologies and materials, the GEnx has the highest reliability and utilization, lowest fuel, burn and longest range capable of any engine in its thrust class.
