RTX’s Pratt & Whitney to power 15 additional single-aisle aircraft for Cebu Pacific Air

Pratt & Whitney GTF engines selected for follow-on A320neo and A321neo order

SINGAPORE, Feb. 20, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — (Singapore Airshow) — Pratt & Whitney, an RTX (NYSE: RTX) business, was selected by Cebu Pacific Air (Cebu Pacific) to provide GTF engines to power an additional 10 A321neo and five A320neo aircraft. Pratt & Whitney will also provide Cebu Pacific with GTF engine maintenance through an EngineWise® Comprehensive service agreement.

“Pratt & Whitney has been providing GTF power to Cebu Pacific since 2019,” said Rick Deurloo, president of Commercial Engines at Pratt & Whitney. “With deliveries for this most recent order starting in 2025, the GTF engine will provide even more fuel and carbon emissions savings.”

Cebu Pacific currently has 33 GTF-powered A320neo family aircraft in service. Prior to providing GTF power, Pratt & Whitney supplied JT8D engines for the airline’s DC-9 aircraft. Pratt & Whitney and Cebu Pacific’s relationship extends back to the 1990s.

“We continue to grow the number of routes we offer to our passengers while benefitting from lower operating costs,” said Michael B. Szucs, chief executive officer of Cebu Pacific. “Lower operating costs are a key component for us to continue our growth and the substantial improvements in fuel burn are a part of our ongoing commitment to reduce our environmental footprint.”

The Pratt & Whitney GTF engine, featuring Collins Aerospace nacelle and engine accessories, delivers industry-leading fuel efficiency and sustainability benefits for single-aisle aircraft. The engine’s revolutionary geared fan architecture is the foundation for even more efficient and sustainable propulsion technologies in the decades ahead, with advancements like the Pratt & Whitney GTF Advantage engine and beyond.
