PurePower Geared Turbofan Selected For New EgyptAir C Series Aircraft

Selection Announced At Dubai Air Show

The PurePower Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine to power up to 24 new Bombardier CS300 aircraft. The order was announced during an event at the Dubai Airshow, which was attended by officials from EgyptAir, Bombardier and Pratt & Whitney. It includes 12 CS300s with purchase rights for an additional 12 aircraft. Deliveries are expected to begin in 2018.

"We are pleased to add the GTF-powered CS300 aircraft to our fleet and look forward to experiencing its many economic and environmental benefits," said Safwat Musallam, Chairman  & CEO of EgyptAir Holding Company.  

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

"Our relationship with EgyptAir dates back to the days of the P&W-powered 707," said Chris Calio, president of commercial engines at Pratt & Whitney. "Pratt & Whitney and International Aero Engines (IAE) currently power several aircraft in the EgyptAir fleet, and we are privileged to support their expansion with engines for their C Series fleet."

EgyptAir is the official flag carrier of Egypt and is headquartered at the Cairo International Airport.
