Pratt & Whitney has received more than 2,000 new GTF engine orders and commitments, including options and spares, from 22 customers, in the past 12 months.
“The GTF’s strong order book over the past year is a reflection of the tremendous value the engine provides to operators,” said Chris Calio, president of commercial engines at Pratt & Whitney. “This engine architecture is allowing customers to realize fuel burn and environmental benefits that are unmatched in the industry. We are very excited about the future of the GTF engine.”
There are about 200 GTF-powered aircraft in service today with 26 operators around the world. Since entering into service in early 2016, the GTF engine family has delivered on its promised ability to reduce fuel burn by 16 to 20 per cent, and to reduce regulated emissions and noise footprint.
Pratt & Whitney is investing more than $1.3 billion in its global manufacturing and aftermarket network.
