Lufthansa CFM56-5C Engine Achieves 100,000 Flight Hours

Airline Has Been Flying The Engine For More Than 20 Years

Lufthansa and CFM International are celebrating the achievement of 100,000 flight hours by one of the airline’s CFM56-5C engine more than 20 years after Lufthansa took delivery of its first Airbus A340-300.

Lufthansa, which is part of the Lufthansa Group, took delivery of its first CFM-powered airplane in 1986 and currently has a fleet 350 CFM56 engines powering Airbus A319/A320, A340-300, and Boeing Classic 737 aircraft. The airline was the launch customer for the CFM56-5C-powered long-range, four-engine A340 and put the first aircraft into revenue service in February 1993. Lufthansa currently operates 18 CFM-powered A340 aircraft.

“We are very proud to be sharing this milestone with Lufthansa,” said Jean-Paul Ebanga, president and CEO of CFM International. “This airline has historically been known for the technical excellence of its fleet and its CFM56 engines continue to maintain world-class reliability. We believe we build the most reliable engines in the air but we know that it is our customers that keep the flying. On behalf of the entire CFM team, I extend our warmest congratulations to everyone at Lufthansa.”

The engine (ESN 740146) entered commercial service with Lufthansa on November 16, 1993 on one of the first Airbus A340 aircraft to be delivered. Over the course of its service life, the engine has been fully overhauled four times at Lufthansa Technik.
