Turkish Airlines Orders GE90-Powered Boeing 777-300ER Aircraft

Signs OnPoint Maintenance Agreement For New Engines

Turkish Airlines (THY) has ordered 15 GE90-115B-powered Boeing 777-300ER aircraft with options for five additional aircraft. Delivery will begin in 2014. THY has also signed a long-term OnPoint solutions agreement for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of its new GE90-115B engines. The total engine order and OnPoint solution agreement is valued at more than $1.4 billion.

"The GE90 engine has a strong reputation for outstanding performance and reliability, and this reputation helped us select the engine-aircraft combination as we look to expand our fleet," said Temel Kotil, Turkish Airlines' CEO.
 
At 115,000 pounds of thrust, the GE90-115B engine includes such performance-enhancing features as three-dimensional aerodynamic (3-D aero) compressor and wide-chord, swept composite fan blades for greater efficiency. The dual annular combustor emits no more than 40 percent of the hydrocarbons allowed by today's international standards. In addition, today’s GE90-115B engines have been enhanced to reduce fuel burn by 36 percent from the 2000 launch specifications.
 
More than 1,500 GE90-115B engines have been ordered by customers for their Boeing 777-300ERs, 777-200LRs and 777 Freighters. In 2011, the GE90 engine experienced its most successful year and accumulated airline and freighter operator commitments for 400 engines. This surpassed the 2007 record of 250 engine commitments in a year.
 
Snecma of France, Avio SpA of Italy and IHI Corporation of Japan are revenue-sharing participants in the GE90 program.
