Pratt & Whitney Engines in Demand for Chinese Carriers

Nov. 3, 2016
Pratt & Whitney will draw about $800 million in new orders at Air Show China 2016, including two contracts from different airlines for V2500 turbofan jet engines to power a total of 31 Airbus A320ceo jets.

Pratt & Whitney will come away from this week’s Air Show China in Zhuhai, Guangdong, with about $800 million worth of orders for its V2500 turbofan jet engines, to be installed in Airbus A320ceo aircraft for two airlines. Air China selected the V2500 to power 18 A320ceo family aircraft, and Shenzhen Airlines chose the V2500 engine to power 13 A320ceo jets.

"We appreciate the trust Air China places in our products and people," according to Rick Deurloo, Pratt & Whitney’s SVP for Commercial Engine Sales, Marketing and Customer Support. He made similar comments about the Shenzhen Airlines, and expressed confidence about supporting the airlines and their jets in service.

Air China, based at Beijing Capital International Airport, is China's national flag carrier and a member of the Star Alliance, the world’s largest airline network. Shenzen Airlines, also a part of the Star Alliance, carries passengers, freight, and postal cargo.
