Aegean Airlines has selected the Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engine to power up to 62 Airbus A320neo Family aircraft: 30 firm, 12 option, and up to 20 leased aircraft. Pratt & Whitney will also provide the airline with engine maintenance through a long-term EngineWise® Comprehensive service agreement.

Since entering into service in early 2016, the GTF engine has demonstrated its promised ability to reduce fuel burn by 16%, to reduce NOx emissions by 50% to the regulatory standard and to lower the noise footprint by 75%.

Pratt & Whitney already powers the airline’s fleet of 49 A320ceo family aircraft with V2500® engines. The Athens-based airline’s subsidiary company, Olympic Air, also currently operates 12 PW100-powered regional Turboprop aircraft.

The V2500 engine is offered through IAE International Aero Engines AG, a multinational aero engine consortium whose shareholders comprise Pratt & Whitney, Pratt & Whitney Aero Engines International GmbH; Japanese Aero Engines Corporation; and MTU Aero Engines GmbH.

EngineWise includes engine fleet data analytics and real-time intelligence to predict and prevent engine disruptions before they occur, significant investments in new technology and resources to improve responsiveness and flexibility, and a growing portfolio of service offerings.
