Hawaiian selects Pratt & Whitney engines to power new A321neo fleet
Hawaiian Airlines has selected the Pratt & Whitney PurePower 1133G-JM engine to power its new fleet of Airbus A321neo aircraft. Pratt & Whitney will also provide off-wing engine maintenance via its PureSolution Fleet Management Program. Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower engine uses an advanced gear system allowing the engine’s fan to operate at a different speed than the low-pressure compressor and turbine. The combination of the gear system and an all-new advanced core delivers double-digit improvements in fuel efficiency and environmental emissions as well as a 50% reduction in noise.
