Safran provides the world’s leading airframers with innovative and reliable propulsion systems. Our efforts today focus on decreasing fuel consumption and maintenance costs, while designing more eco-responsible systems. Through CFM International (the 50/50 joint company between Safran Aircraft Engines and GE) we produce the LEAP® turbofan, successor to the best-selling CFM56®. The LEAP powers new-generation single-aisle commercial jets: the Airbus A320neo, Boeing 737 MAX and COMAC C919. Safran, along with its partner GE, has adopted the Revolutionary Innovation for Sustainable Engines (RISE) program to develop a new generation of engines for short- and medium-haul planes. Safran aims to reduce fuel consumption by 20% compared to LEAP with an engine compatible with 100% sustainable fuel or hydrogen in order to move towards carbon neutrality in 2050. We’re also a leading military aircraft engine manufacturer, supplying the whole M88 engine for the Rafale fighter, and as part of a consortium making the TP400 turboprop engine for the Airbus A400M transport aircraft
