Pratt & Whitney (P&W) has announced it will increase list prices of its PurePower geared turbofan engines during 2015 to reflect the “significant value” the fuel-efficient engines are expected to provide customers when they enter service.
Currently P&W has an order book for more than 6,300 PurePower engines, including options, with 60 customers from 30 countries.
Greg Gernhardt P&W commercial engines president, said: “We are more confident than ever that the PurePower engine is the most fuel efficient engine in its category.
Airlines already see the benefits of our technology, which will save millions of dollars in fuel expenses and maintenance costs. As a result of the exceptional customer demand and great test results on our PurePower engine, we are implementing increases to the engine pricing across our product range.”
The engine, which will power aircraft including the CSeries and the A320neo, has completed more than 15,000 hours and 30,000 cycles of testing.
