Wizz Air has selected the V2500 engine to power a new fleet of 17 previously announced Airbus A321ceo family aircraft. The V2500 engine is offered through IAE International Aero Engines AG, a multinational aero engine consortium whose shareholders comprise Pratt & Whitney (NYSE: UTX ), Pratt & Whitney Aero Engines International GmbH, Japanese Aero Engines Corporation and MTU Aero Engines.

This new order supplements an existing order for 179 V2500 engines, bringing the new total number of V2500 engines in Wizz Air's fleet to 213, including spares. The agreement also includes a long-term flight hour agreement (FHA).

"As one of Europe's leading low-cost airlines with hundreds of flights every day, reliability and maintenance services are very important to our business success," said John Stephenson , executive vice president, Wizz Air. "This new order continues to demonstrate our confidence in the V2500 engine as highly efficient, reliable power for our fleet."

"The V2500 engine has a long-standing track record of superior performance," said Greg Gernhardt , president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines. "We are excited to expand our partnership with Wizz Air to power and maintain these new engines in their fleet."
