JetBlue Airways has chosen Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1100G-JM engines to power its order of 40 firm A320neos.
The MOU includes 86 PurePower engines with a long-term PureSolution maintenance service agreement. Deliveries are scheduled to start in 2018.
“Pratt & Whitney has done an outstanding job developing an engine for the Airbus A320neo; we are confident we’ve made an excellent choice for our aircraft,” commented Dave Barger, president and CEO of JetBlue Airways. “The PurePower engines are an investment in our fleet, our environment and our people that will maximise performance and efficiency, while minimising our carbon footprint.”
Each JetBlue Airbus A320neo family aircraft will be powered by two PurePower PW1100G-JM engines with benefits including double-digit reductions in fuel burn, environmental emissions, engine noise and operating costs when compared with today’s engines.
