November 14, 2023 – Dubai, UAE – GE Aerospace today announced an order from Royal Air Maroc (RAM) for 4 GEnx-1B engines to power their new order of Boeing 787 aircraft. This order adds to RAM’s current fleet of nine GEnx-powered Boeing 787-8 and 787-9 Dreamliners.

“This agreement is part of our continuing efforts to grow our fleet and expand our long-haul routes to North and South America, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Europe,” said Abdelhamid Addou, Chief Executive Officer of Royal Air Maroc. “We welcome these new aircraft and engines into our growing Dreamliner fleet.”

“We are very pleased that the GEnx continues to be the engine of choice for RAM's Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet,” said Kathy MacKenzie, Vice President, GE Aerospace Commercial Programs. “GE Aerospace and RAM have forged a strong relationship during the last few decades, and we look forward to strengthening our relationship for many more years.”

The GEnx engine family has more than 50 million flight hours since entry into service in 2011 and is the fastest-selling, high-thrust engine in GE history with nearly 3,000 engines in service and on backlog, including spares.

The GEnx-1B powers two out of every three 787 aircraft in service. The engine also provides a 1.4% fuel burn savings for the typical 787 mission compared to its competition. The added fuel savings enables more than 2 million fewer pounds of CO2 per aircraft annually. Like all GE Aerospace engines, the GEnx can operate on approved Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) blends today.

Representing a giant leap forward in propulsion technology, GEnx uses lightweight durable materials and advanced design processes to reduce weight, improve performance, and lower maintenance, making it the best engine choice for long-haul flights.

GEnx’s revenue-sharing participants are IHI Corporation of Japan, GKN Aerospace Engine Systems of the UK, MTU of Germany, TechSpace Aero (Safran) of Belgium, Safran Aircraft Engines of France and Samsung Techwin of Korea.
