Pratt & Whitney Unveils Higher Thrust PurePower Engine

New A321neo Engine Most Powerful Offered For The Airplane

Pratt & Whitney has launched the newest addition to the PurePower engine family, the PW1135G-JM engine, a 35,000 thrust class engine for the Airbus A321neo aircraft. The engine's higher thrust makes it the most powerful engine on the A321neo allowing A321neo operators, fitted with Geared Turbofan engine technology, to fly routes of greater distance while carrying more passengers or larger payloads when operating out of high-altitude airports.

"At Pratt & Whitney, we're always working to stay one step ahead with our technology while providing our customers value. The PurePower PW1135G-JM engine is yet another example of this approach," said David Brantner, president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines. "With the PW1135G-JM engine, we offer incremental value by opening up new routes without compromising fuel burn, emissions and environmental performance."

The higher thrust offered by the PW1135G-JM engine allows an A321neo operator to benefit from increased range when operating out of high altitude airports, such as Mexico City and Bogota.

Compared with an A320ceo without "Sharklets", the A320neo powered by PW1100G-JM engine technology will provide customers with up to a 15 percent reduction in fuel-burn with a corresponding reduction in CO2 emissions. The PW1100G-JM engine also provides up to 75 percent reduction in the A320neo noise footprint, which is also environmentally friendly and allows longer hours of operation at airports that operate under curfew.

To date the PurePower engine family has completed more than 9,000 hours of testing, including more than 1,200 hours of flight test hours. Pratt & Whitney has more than 5,500 PurePower engine orders and commitments, including options.
