Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC) has signed its first order with IAE International Aero Engines AG to supply V2500-A5 SelectOne engines to power two new firm A320ceo aircraft plus options for two additional aircraft. Aircraft deliveries are scheduled for 2015.
"Given Nepal's mountainous terrain, we chose V2500 SelectOne engines because of their long-standing reputation as both reliable and fuel-efficient powerplants," said Madan Kharel, managing director of Nepal Airlines Corporation. "These engines will help us to continue providing reliable air transport to our customers."
"We are proud that Nepal Airlines Corporation selected V2500 engines for their A320ceo aircraft," said Dave Brantner, president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines. "This is their first order for V2500 engines, and we look forward to establishing a long relationship with them."
