Jetstar selects P&W EcoPower engine wash

Jetstar Airways has signed a long-term agreement with John Holland Aviation Services for Pratt & Whitney’s EcoPower engine wash service on the V2500 engines powering its fleet of the airline’s A320 and A321 aircraft.

John Holland Aviation Services is Pratt & Whitney’s EcoPower franchise partner located in Melbourne, Australia.

“We switched from a traditional engine wash method to the EcoPower engine wash because of the significant environmental and operational benefits the service provides,” explained Chris Snook, Jetstar’s executive manager engineering.

Pratt & Whitney says EcoPower reduces fuel burn by as much as 1.2%, while also decreasing engine gas temperature, increasing the amount of time an engine can stay on wing.
