Tigerair Selects PurePower Engines for New Airbus Aircraft

Tigerair selected Pratt & Whitney's PurePower PW1100G-JM engines for 37 firm A320neo aircraft. Deliveries are scheduled to commence in 2018. Pratt & Whitney is a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

"Pratt & Whitney is delighted to introduce the PurePower engine family in Singapore, a very important region for the company," said Dave Brantner, president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines.  "We are also confident that we will enter into service with an engine that meets or exceeds the fuel burn specifications as promised which will provide superior environmental and economic performance."


Mr. Koay Peng Yen, Group CEO of Tigerair said, "These PurePower engines promise greater fuel efficiency for our aircraft, thereby delivering larger cost savings for the airline.  We can in turn pass these savings on to Tigerair's customers, so they enjoy even greater value when they fly with us."

Tigerair, established in 2004, is a leading Singapore-based no-frills airline that offers affordable travel options and a seamless customer experience. Tigerair comprises three airlines, namely Tigerair Singapore, Tigerair Mandala and Tigerair Australia. Collectively, the group's network extends to over 50 destinations across 14 countries in Asia Pacific. As of March 20, 2014, Tigerair operates a fleet of 48 Airbus A320-family aircraft, averaging less than three years of age.
