CFM International has secured orders from lessors CDB Aviation and ALAFCO for Leap-1A engines to power incoming Airbus A320neo narrowbodies.

CDB Aviation has chosen the engines for its second batch of 45 A320neos. The deal follows a 2016 agreement with CFM covering the lessor's first 45 of the aircraft.

The order has a list-price value of more than $1.3 billion.

"The Leap-1A engine delivers a multitude of benefits and operating advantages," states CDB Aviation chief executive Peter Chang.

Kuwaiti lessor ALFACO has meanwhile selected Leap-1As to power 30 firm A320neos and 20 on which it holds option.

If the agreement is fully fulfilled, ALAFCO would have 120 Leap engines in its fleet.

"Introducing the Leap-1A-powered A320neo into our portfolio has been very successful collaboration between ALAFCO and CFM and is an important part of our long-term strategy," states ALAFCO chairman Ahmed Albzbin.
