PARIS, June 14 (Reuters) – General Electric and
France’s Safran on Monday set out plans to develop a
new jet engine able to reduce fuel consumption and emissions by
20% as they announced a 10-year extension to their CFM
International joint-venture to 2050.

The CFM RISE engine, a future successor to the LEAP model
used on the Boeing 737 MAX and Airbus A320neo, will feature a
design with visible fan blades known as open-rotor and could
enter service by the mid-2030s, they said in a statement.
