“These orders demonstrate not only the strength of aviation’s recovery, but also the value that GTF engines deliver in industry-leading efficiency and sustainability,” said Rick Deurloo, president of Commercial Engines at Pratt & Whitney. “GTF engines will have soon saved airlines more than a billion gallons of fuel and avoided more than 10 million metric tons of greenhouse gases. This is in just seven years since entry into service. Over the life of these programs, GTF engines will save our customers billions more.”

The Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engine is the only geared propulsion system delivering industry-leading sustainability benefits and dependable, world-class operating costs. GTF-powered aircraft reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 16% to 20%, NOx emissions by 50% and noise footprint by 75%.

Certified for operation on 50% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and successfully tested on 100% SAF, GTF engines are capable of further reductions in carbon emissions, which will help the aviation industry meet its goal of net zero emissions by 2050. The engine’s revolutionary geared fan architecture is the foundation for more sustainable aviation technologies in the decades ahead, with advancements like the Pratt & Whitney GTF Advantage™ engine and beyond.
