Tigerair Taiwan has taken delivery of its first Airbus A320neo aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF engines.  The airline placed the initial engine order in 2019 and has a mixed fleet of 15 purchased and leased aircraft.

“We’re excited for Tigerair Taiwan to receive their first GTF-powered Airbus A320neo,” said Rick Deurloo, chief commercial officer at Pratt & Whitney. “Environmental and economic sustainability are key priorities for both companies, and the fuel savings with the GTF engine that will help reduce emissions and lower operating costs to best serve their customers.”

Tigerair Taiwan, a low-cost carrier established in 2014 and headquartered in Taiwan, is a subsidiary of China Airlines and currently operates 11 A320ceo aircraft powered by the V2500® engine. The airline believes that Pratt & Whitney’s GTF engines will help it become more environmentally sustainable, while also becoming more competitive as a low-cost carrier (LCC).

“We are thrilled to receive our first A320neo and experience those benefits firsthand for years to come,” said Dennis Lai, chief operations officer at Tigerair Taiwan.
