Pratt & Whitney has released that 1,000 Airbus A320neo-family aircraft powered by GTF engines have now been delivered to airlines around the world. The 1,000th aircraft was an A321neo delivered to Wizz Air in Budapest, Hungary. The airline has selected GTF engines to power 276 A320neo family aircraft, of which 54 have now been delivered. Pratt & Whitney also powers the airline’s fleet of 105 A320ceo-family aircraft with V2500® engines.
“We are thrilled to accept the 1,000th GTF-powered A320neo-family aircraft,” said Owain Jones, chief development officer at Wizz Air. “The industry-leading technology in the GTF engine is helping to power our growth, while significantly reducing our impact on the environment and further reducing our already best-in-class operating costs. Our collaboration with Pratt & Whitney has helped us make air travel affordable for more people than ever before and they are now partnering with us through our efforts to help our Ukrainian brothers and sisters reach safe destinations.”
