Go Airlines, TransAsia Airways Select PW1100G-JM Engines For neo Aircraft

Announce Orders For The Powerplant Reaching 171 Units

Engine orders for A320neo family aircraft are being announced this week at the Singapore Air Show. Two of the early announcements came from Go Airlines and TransAsia Airways, both of which have selected Pratt & Whitey PurePower PW1100G-JM engines.

Budget carrier Go Airlines (GoAir) has ordered the powerplants for it 72 firm A320neo aircraft. The agreement represents 144 PW1100G-JM engines and is anticipated to include a PureSolution maintenance package. Deliveries are scheduled to start in 2016.

"We selected the Pratt & Whitney PurePower engine because we are confident that its performance advantage will deliver significant savings in operating costs, as well as considerable reductions in emissions and noise," said Jeh Wadia, managing director, GoAir.  "The PurePower engine is the best long-term solution for GoAir's growing fleet."

TransAsia Airways has selected the engines to power its order of six firm and six option A321neo aircraft. The deal includes a 10-year PureSolution maintenance service agreement for 27 engines, including spare and option engines. Deliveries are scheduled to start in 2017. "We are truly honored that TransAsia selected IAE and Pratt & Whitney to power its new A321 aircraft fleet," said Todd Kallman, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines & Global Services president. "We look forward to growing our relationship even further with the delivery and service of these new dependable engines."

TransAsia Airways also selected International Aero Engines' (IAE) V2500 engine to power its order for six A321 standard aircraft.

The 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 the fuel efficiency and environmental benefits.
