CFM International has awarded the TRUEngine designation to nearly 110 CFM56-5B engines in the AirAsia fleet.

TRUEngine is a product of CFM International (CFM), a 50/50 joint company of Snecma (SAFRAN Group) and General Electric Company.

"At AirAsia, we pride ourselves on operating one of the youngest, most efficient fleets in the industry," said Azhari Mohd Dahlan, regional director of Engineering for AirAsia. "Achieving TRUEngine status for our CFM56-5B engines is another way in which we can differentiate our fleet from that of our competitors,"

The CFM56-5B engines in the AirAsia fleet were awarded TRUEngine status following a comprehensive review of the airline's fleet operational data and maintenance records.

These records validated that maintenance of all of the engines is consistent with CFM International's requirements for those engine models, including maintenance practices, spare parts and repairs and that they comply with CFM-issued engine manuals, service bulletins, and other maintenance recommendations.

The CFM56 engines of several more fleet owners will soon be evaluated for the TRUEngine designation, which will be available to all CFM56 engines meeting the criteria.
