Greek carrier Aegean on Wednesday announced a MoU with US manufacturer Pratt & Whitney to power up to 62 Airbus A320neo aircraft with GTF engines.
The agreement was signed by Aegean President Eftichios Vassilakis, CEO Dimitris Gerogiannis and P&W senior vice president Rick Deurloo, in the presence of US ambassador to Greece Geoffrey R. Pyatt.
Pratt & Whitney already powers the airline’s fleet of 49 A320ceo family aircraft with V2500 engines.
"Selection of GTF engines opens a new chapter in our long-standing partnership with Pratt & Whitney. Our aircraft will be powered with the most advanced technology engines. This agreement is expected to offer a substantial improvement in our company's efficiency through significantly reduced fuel consumption and optimization of maintenance costs through the long-term engines maintenance service agreement,” Gerogiannis said.
