Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) has entered into a multi-year engine services agreement with Indian regional airline FLY91 for the Maintenance, Repair And Overhaul (MRO) of the PW127M engines that power its fleet of ATR 72-600 turboprop passenger aircraft.
FLY91 intends to increase its fleet by the end of 2024 to provide local connectivity to underserved cities in the country.
“Availability is a key factor by which airlines are evaluated from a customer service perspective,” said Irene Makris, vice president, of Customer Service at Pratt & Whitney Canada. “The ability of a commercial aircraft to take off as scheduled often depends on the readiness and reliability of its engines. We have 40 years of experience in the maintenance of the PW100 engine family and we’re confident we can help FLY91 enjoy excellent dispatch reliability for its ATR 72-600 fleet and fully meet passenger expectations.”
“The agreement with Pratt & Whitney Canada is a significant step in assuring we can provide our customers with dependable regional air travel from our base at Goa’s Manohar International Airport,” said Manoj Chacko, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of FLY91. He further added, “We are committed to reliable, sustainable, and scalable air transportation services to build India’s regional connectivity. We strongly believe that our ATR aircraft powered by P&WC’s PW127M engines will help us achieve just that.”
Pratt & Whitney Canada is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the PW100 engine family which powers 90% of all regional turboprop aircraft operating today in the 30- to 90-passenger category. PW100-powered regional turboprop aircraft consume 25 to 40% less fuel and avoid an equal measure of CO2 emissions than similar-sized jets on typical regional routes of 350 miles or less.
FLY91 is an Indian regional airline headquartered in Goa, that strives to enhance air connectivity across tier 2 and tier 3 cities in India. FLY91 will connect over 50 cities across India in the next five years and as part of this plan, FLY91 will induct 30 aircraft into its fleet which will be based at multiple hubs across the country.
