Engine Alliance enters revenue service with Etihad Airways

GP7200 engines have entered revenue service with Etihad Airways’ first EA-powered A380. The airline operated its first revenue flights on December 27th, 2014 between Abu Dhabi International Airport and London Heathrow Airport. The EA-powered A380 entered service in August 2008. Currently 82 EA-powered A380s are in operation around the globe: 57 with Emirates, ten with Air France, ten with Korean Air, four with Qatar Airways and one with Etihad Airways. The EA-powered A380 fleet is supported by the world’s largest network, with field service engineers available in more than 100 cities around the globe. We are excited to welcome Etihad Airways to the Engine Alliance family,” said EA President Dean Athans. “Etihad gains the benefit of more than 3 million hours of GP7200 experience, in addition to the PW4000, GE90 and GEnx experience that have directly benefitted the GP7200 engine. We are proud to be the engine of choice in the Middle East.”
