GE Aviation in Indonesia

With 560 engines in operation, an aircraft equipped with GE technology takes off in Indonesia every 68 seconds. Through CFM International and the Engine Alliance, engines manufactured by GE power 75 percent of the aircraft in Indonesia.

Our partner airlines in Indonesia operate our CFM and LEAP engines along with our advanced, recently introduced GE-90 115 engines. These new engines power 10 of Garuda Indonesia’s B777 fleet, which arrived in June 2013.

One of GE's longstanding partners in ASEAN, Garuda Indonesia was the natural choice to run the CFM56-7B engine test cell at its Garuda Maintenance Facility (GMF). The cell, which opened in February 2013, is a strategic step that will help Garuda Indonesia enhance GMF AeroAsia’s engine shop capabilities in line with international safety and maintenance standards. The development stage also involved GMF’s engineers, which provided opportunities for technology and knowledge transfer to GMF employees.



The newest member of the GE aircraft engine family, the innovative GE9X, has been years in the making. Advanced technologies and materials help to create this ultra-efficient, powerful twin-aisle engine. A record-setting 27:1 compressor ratio and latest 3D aerodynamic design in the turbine will help make the power plant GE’s most fuel-efficient widebody aircraft engine.


The GEnx aircraft engine uses the latest generation materials and design processes to reduce weight, improve fuel efficiency and lower maintenance costs for mid-size, long-range aircrafts such as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.


Originally certified in 1995 at 84,700 lbs. of thrust, today's GE90 engine powers more advanced Boeing 777 aircraft, capable of flying farther, faster and more efficiently than their predecessors. It powers five different types of Boeing 777. At 127,000 pound of thrust, the GE90-115B is one of the world’s most powerful jet engines.

This engine powers 10 of Garuda Indonesia’s Boeing 777s, the first of which arrived in June 2013.


LEAP aircraft engines, developed by CFM International (CFM), a joint venture of GE Aviation and France’s Snecma, will reduce fuel burn, noise and NOx emissions, while maintaining CFM’s highly regarded engine reliability.

Our partner airlines in Indonesia operate our CFM and LEAP engines. There are around 450 CFM engines and 400 LEAP engines operating in Indonesia


In addition to engines, GE Aviation also supports our partner airlines with PBN technology and fuel management systems. We help our customers become more global by collaborating on leadership and technical training programs, and, in technology transfer, by helping them achieve engine service and maintenance service excellence.
