Pratt & Whitney has launched the newest addition to the PurePower engine family, the PW1135G-JM engine, a 35,000 lb thrust class engine for the Airbus A321neo.
The engine's higher thrust makes it the most powerful engine on the A321neo allowing operators to fly routes of greater distance while carrying more passengers or larger payloads when operating out of high-altitude airports.
“At Pratt & Whitney, we're always working to stay one step ahead with our technology while providing our customers value. The PurePower PW1135G-JM engine is yet another example of this approach,” remarked David Brantner, president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines. "With the PW1135G-JM engine, we offer incremental value by opening up new routes without compromising fuel burn, emissions and environmental performance.”
