'GE has developed a strong working relationship with TAP, which operates a fleet of CF6-powered A310s and a fleet of CFM-powered A320s and A340s,' said Scott Donnelly, president and CEO of GE-Aviation. 'We are thrilled with the opportunity to expand on our efforts together.'

The GE's CF6 engine family is one of the workhorse jet engines of the airline industry. For 30 years, it has been among the most utilized and reliable jet engines powering more than 10 models of wide-body aircraft and has flown more hours than any other high-bypass engine family. The CF6-80E1 engine was developed specifically for the A330.

TAP Portugal will use the new A330 aircraft on routes between Portugal and Brazil. In addition to augmenting its current fleet, the new aircraft will support the airline's continued growth in the long-haul sector.

GE-Aviation, an operating unit of General Electric Company, is one of the world's leading manufacturers of jet engines for civil and military aircraft. GE also is a world-leading provider of maintenance and support services for jet engines. Visit GE-Aviation at www.geaviation.com
