Volaris has announced the selection of the Pratt & Whitney GTF engine to power an additional 80 A320neo family aircraft. Pratt & Whitney will also provide Volaris with engine maintenance through a long-term EngineWise® comprehensive service agreement. Volaris previously placed an order for 44 GTF-powered A320neo family aircraft. This brings Volaris’ total commitment to 124 GTF-powered aircraft.
Volaris is a low-cost carrier headquartered in Mexico City, Mexico and an affiliate of Indigo Partners. It was also the first airline in North America to fly the A320neo. Volaris currently operates 30 GTF-powered A320neo family aircraft and a fleet of 56 V2500®-powered A320ceo family aircraft.
The three other airlines affiliated with Indigo Partners – JetSMART in Chile, Wizz Air in Hungary and Frontier Airlines in the United States – have each selected GTF engines to power their A320neo family fleets. Together, the four Indigo Partners airlines have committed to 619 GTF-powered aircraft.
