GE Aviation orders at Paris Air Show to boost Alabama operations

PARIS – GE Aviation and its partners racked up more than $31 billion in orders and commitments at this week’s Paris Air Show – and the company’s Alabama operations will benefit from the bonanza.

The orders and commitments received at the aerospace industry’s largest trade event from more than 30 airlines and airplane leasing companies extended GE Aviation’s orderbook by more than 1,700 engines.

That includes record orders for the fuel-efficient LEAP engine, which powers the Airbus A320neo family of single-aisle aircraft, as well as the new Boeing 737MAX passenger jets.
