GE Aviation has expanded its TrueChoice contract with Southwest Airlines to include CFM56-7B engines powering the US carrier’s fleet of 83 737-700 and -800 aircraft.

The engine type is added to the existing TrueChoice FlightHour agreement covering more than 1,400 CFM56-7B engines operated across Southwest’s fleet.

Kevin McAllister, president and chief executive officer of GE Engine Services, said the expanded cooperation is demonstration of Dallas-based Southwest’s confidence in its MRO capabilities.

Part of the TrueChoice suite, the FlightHour offering aims to optimise airline ownership costs over an engine’s whole lifecycle and includes flexible risk transfer and payment options.
