Pratt & Whitney, IndiGo Finalize Agreement for 300 PW1100G-JM Engines

Deal Includes Long-Term Maintenance On A320neo Engines

Pratt & Whitney and IndiGo have signed a definitive agreement for PurePower PW1100G-JM engines for 150 Airbus A320neo family aircraft. The agreement includes 300 firm PurePower PW1100G-JM engines with additional options and a long-term PureSolution maintenance agreement. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2015.

"With oil prices on the rise, we are more satisfied than ever with our selection of the Pratt & Whitney PurePower engine," said IndiGo President Aditya Ghosh. "As a result of the lower engine operating cost, we are confident that we can maintain our competitive low fares while simultaneously offering our customers the most environmentally friendly way to fly."

As part of this agreement, each IndiGo Airbus A320neo family aircraft will be powered by two PurePower PW1100G-JM engines with benefits including double-digit reductions in fuel burn, environmental emissions, engine noise and operating costs when compared with today's engines. "This IndiGo order represents one of the largest engine orders in Pratt & Whitney's long history," said Todd Kallman, president, Commercial Engines & Global Services for Pratt & Whitney. "We are excited by the opportunity to power IndiGo's A320neo fleet and fly its customers with the dependable Pratt & Whitney PurePower engines."

Pratt & Whitney has more than 2,500 PurePower engines on order, including options. The PurePower engine uses an advanced gear system allowing the engine's fan to operate at a different speed than the low-pressure compressor and turbine. The combination of the gear system and an all-new advanced core delivers double-digit improvements in fuel efficiency and environmental emissions as well as a 50 percent reduction in noise. IndiGo is India's largest low-cost carrier, as well as the fastest growing carrier.

PureSolution service agreements provide flexible and comprehensive aftermarket solutions for PurePower engine family operators and ensure lowest cost of ownership throughout the engine life cycle.
