International Airlines Group signs MOU for V2500 Engines to Power 30 Airbus Aircraft

International Airlines Group (IAG) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with International Aero Engines' (IAE) for V2500 engines. IAE will power 30 A320ceo aircraft for the IAG subsidiary, Vueling Airlines. These aircraft were part of an IAG order announced in August 2013.

"These engines provide environmental benefits which enable us to reduce the carbon emissions of our fleet, leading to further unit cost reductions," said Alex Cruz, chief executive officer, Vueling Airlines.


The IAE V2500 SelectOne engine, which entered into service in October 2008, places a strong emphasis on efficiency because of the incorporation of key technologies such as 3D aerodynamics and the latest in materials and cooling technology.

"On behalf of Pratt & Whitney and IAE, we are proud to sign an MOU with Vueling to power their fleet of A320ceo aircraft," said David Brantner, president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines. "This is a direct testament to the benefits that the V2500 offers including having the lowest fuel burn, best performance retention, lowest total emissions, and a low cost of ownership."
