P&W's PurePower Engine for the A320neo Aircraft Now Saves Additional 2 Percent On Fuel Burn

Pratt & Whitney today announced another technology breakthrough on the PurePower engine – an additional 2 percent fuel burn enhancement on the PW1100G-JM engine for the Airbus A320neo aircraft family. The additional fuel burn savings is in addition to the 15 percent the engine already offers. The PurePower Engine Advantage for the PW1100G-JM engine allows for increased fuel efficiency by enhancing aerodynamics and cooling improvements in the model's architecture. Pratt & Whitney is a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

"The increased fuel burn savings on this Geared Turbofan™ engine model will help drive unbeatable operating efficiency on the A320neo aircraft," said Dave Brantner, president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines. "Enhancing fuel burn savings is one example of Pratt & Whitney's drive to constantly improve on mature technology that will benefit engine durability and reliability for customers."


To date the PurePower engine family has completed nearly 10,000 hours of testing, including more than 1,400 flight test hours.
