Etihad Airways upgrades to V2500 SelectTwo engines

Etihad Airways has signed an agreement with IAE International Aero Engines AG to upgrade the airline’s current and future fleet of 35 V2500 engine-powered Airbus A320 family of aircraft to the V2500 SelectTwo engine standard. The United Arab Emirates flag carrier will purchase 73 V2500 SelectTwo engine upgrade kits, which also makes provision for spare engines. An upgrade option for the V2500 SelectOne engine, the main advantage of SelectTwo is improved fuel burn. Etihad Airways’ President and Chief Executive Officer, James Hogan, said, “The V2500 engine has played an important role in our Airbus A320 type operations, and SelectTwo is the latest example of how IAE strives for new solutions that add value to our fleet, whilst making our fuel-burn more efficient.”
