Pratt & Whitney and ILFC Finalize PurePower PW1100G Engines Order

Pratt & Whitney and International Lease Finance Corporation signed a definitive agreement during the Paris Air Show concerning engines for up to 100 Airbus A320neo family aircraft ordered by International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC) as part of an order announced in early March. The agreement includes 120 firm PurePower PW1100G engines for 60 aircraft and options for up to 80 engines on an additional 40 aircraft with deliveries which may occur as early as 2015. “We’re encouraged by the market traction of the PurePower geared turbofan engine as a result of its many economic and environmental benefits,” said Henri Courpron, ILFC chief executive officer. “We are confident our customers will seek out this competitive advantage offered with the lower operating costs of the PW1100G engine.” As part of this agreement, each ILFC Airbus A320neo family aircraft will be powered by two PurePower PW1100G engines with benefits including reductions in fuel burn, environmental emissions, engine noise and operating costs when compared with today’s engines, according to P&W.
