GE says all options on the table over engine for stretched A220

PARIS (Reuters) – GE Chairman and GE Aerospace CEO Larry Culp said on Monday all options were on the table, when asked whether the company would be interested in investing in a new engine for a potential larger version of the Airbus A220 jet.

“I don’t think we would rule anything in or rule anything out,” he said at the Paris Airshow.

GE co-owns engine maker CFM International with France’s Safran. The A220 is currently powered solely by engines from CFM competitor Pratt & Whitney.
