Viet Nam is an important market for CFM International in Asia, President and CEO Gael Meheust said during a meeting with press and partners in Ha Noi on Friday.

Meheust is on a business trip to Viet Nam to meet local partners including Vietnam Airlines, Vietjet Air and Bamboo Airways.

“We look forward to signing more contracts with Vietnamese enterprises. At the current time, I am paying them a visit to discuss the strategy of co-operation between us. I also want to see how they enjoy our services.”

CFM International (CFM) was formed in 1974 as a 50/50 joint company between GE and Safran Aircraft Engines. Today, CFM is the world’s leading supplier of commercial transport aircraft engines.

Since the first engine was delivered in 1982, CFM has received orders for more than 50,000 CFM56 and LEAP engines from over 590 operators worldwide, of which more than 33,000 engines have been delivered.
