German airline TUIfly and CFM International have achieved a new first-run time-on-wing world record set by a CFM56-7B engine powering one of the airline’s Boeing 737-800s originally delivered in 1999. The engine logged more than 50,000 hours without a shop visit. “This record is a remarkable achievement,” said Friedrich Keppler, TUIfly managing director. “To put this in perspective it is equivalent to driving your car for 16 years with nothing more than oil changes and tune ups; or flying 20 million miles with no engine removals.”
