China’s Spring Airlines has selected CFM International's CFM56-5B engine to power 30 Airbus A320ceo aircraft, in an order valued more than $620 million at current list prices. The Shanghai-based carrier will begin taking delivery in 2015.

Spring Airlines CEO Zhang Xiuzhi said, “We have been cooperating with CFM International since our first day of operation. The performance of the CFM56 engines, combined with the service solutions and world-class customer support from CFM, have proven to be an important part of our operations. CFM continues to earn our trust every day.”
