Trans State Holdings Mitsubishi Regional Jet To Get PW1200G Engines

Fifty Firm Orders And Fifty Options Secured By Pratt & Whitney

Pratt & Whitney has secured 50 firm orders and up to 50 options for engines on new Mitsubishi Regional Jet aircraft ordered by Trans States Holdings as part of a contract announced Tuesday. The agreement represents 100 firm PW1200G engines for the aircraft with 8 spare engines and options for up to 100 additional engines with deliveries scheduled to start in 2014. In addition, Trans States Holdings has signed an exclusive 12-year maintenance contract with Pratt & Whitney for these engines.

"We believe that the MRJ is a game-changing regional jet with its incredibly fuel efficient next generation Pratt & Whitney PurePower geared-turbofan engines, together addressing the vital needs of the environment, as well as the critical needs of passengers and airline operators," said Richard Leach, president of Trans States Holdings. "The MRJ will reduce fuel consumption, noise and NOx emissions—this means savings on operating costs."

"The state-of-the-art aerodynamic design, combined with a game-changing engine will reduce fuel consumption, noise and NOx emissions," said Hideo Egawa, president of Mitsubishi Aircraft. "This will contribute to improved competitiveness and profitability for the airlines, and also open the door to a greater number of airports at which the MRJ can be operated."

"Pratt & Whitney is very proud to add Trans States Holdings to our growing list of distinguished PurePower engine family customers," said Todd Kallman, president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines & Global Services. "We now have more than 600 PW1000G engines on order, when options are exercised."
