GoAir has selected Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engines for the airline’s order of 72 A320neo family aircraft.
Pratt & Whitney will also provide GoAir with a long-term EngineWise® Comprehensive service agreement.
The aircraft are expected to begin delivery in 2021.
The Mumbai, India-based airline currently operates a fleet of 38 GTF-powered A320neo family aircraft. These are part of the initial GoAir order of 72 GTF-powered A320neo aircraft announced in 2012. The additional aircraft offer GoAir the opportunity to add domestic and international routes and expand capacity to provide enhanced connectivity in the region.
Since entering into service in early 2016, the GTF engine has demonstrated its promised ability to reduce fuel burn by 16 percent, to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by 50 percent compared to the regulatory standard, and to reduce the noise footprint by 75 percent.
