GE AVIATION NEWS RELEASE 
United Airlines Selects GEnx Engines for Additional Boeing 787 Dreamliner Order 
LE BOURGET - June 18, 2013 -United Airlines selected GEnx-1B engines to power 
its order for 20 firm Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners and the remaining 15 firm 787 
Dreamliners from a previous order. The engine order for the 35 aircraft plus 
five firmed aircraft options from last year are valued at more than $1.8 
billion (USD) list price. With this order and the six Dreamliners currently 
operated by the airline, United has ordered 65 GEnx-1B-powered 787s, making 
United the largest GEnx-1B operator. 
"United Airlines was the first operator in North America to operate the 
GEnx-1B-powered Boeing 787 Dreamliner, and GE is pleased United is the launch 
airline for the GEnx-1B-powered Boeing 787-10 aircraft," said Kevin McAllister, 
vice president and general manager of Global Sales & Marketing at GE Aviation. 
The GEnx-1B engine is the best-selling engine on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The 
engine has accumulated more than 60,000 flight hours and more than 14,000 
cycles since entering service in 2012. About 900 GEnx-1B engines have been sold 
to 30 customers. 
The GEnx engine family is the fastest-selling engine in GE Aviation history 
with more than 1,300 engines on order. Compared to GE's CF6 engine, the GEnx 
engine offers up to 15 percent better fuel consumption, which translates to 15 
percent less CO2. The GEnx's innovative twin-annular pre-swirl (TAPS) combustor 
dramatically reduces NOx gases as much as 55 percent below today's regulatory 
limits and other regulated gases as much as 90 percent. Based on the ratio of 
decibels to pounds of thrust, the GEnx is the quietest engine GE produces due 
to the large, more efficient fan blades that operate at slower tip speed, 
resulting in about 40 percent lower noise levels.
The GEnx is part of GE's "ecomagination" product portfolio - GE's business 
strategy to develop new, cost-effective technologies that enhance customers' 
environmental and operating performance.
Revenue-sharing participants on the GEnx are IHI Corporation of Japan, Avio 
SpA. of Italy, GKN Aerospace Engine Systems of Sweden, MTU of Germany, 
TechSpace Aero of Belgium, Snecma (SAFRAN Group) of France and Samsung Techwin 
of Korea.
