At the Singapore Airshow this week, Vietjet has signed a deal with Pratt & Whitney to power 19 of their Airbus A321neos.

Deals from engine manufacturers are common, as such propulsion is required to get the aircraft into commercial service once delivery has been made.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

Vietjet Chief Executive Officer Dinh Viet Phuong had this to say on the deal:

“We continue to select and trust our partner, Pratt & Whitney, as they have long been a world leader in the aviation industry with a solid technology foundation.”

“We are confident about the GTF-powered aircraft that provide fuel efficiency and reduce the environmental impact.”

“Vietjet continues to have trust and faith in the ongoing support provided by Pratt & Whitney.”

Adding to this was Rick Deurloo, president of Commercial Engines at Pratt & Whitney, who commented on the deal regarding the powering of the A321neos for the airline:

“Nearly a decade ago, Vietjet first selected the GTF engine, and we value the airline’s continued trust in Pratt & Whitney to power its expanding fleet”.

“GTF engines provide Vietjet with some of the lowest fuel consumption and emissions in the region.”

This represents another strong order for Pratt & Whitney, and is some much-needed PR amid the issues they have been having with customers over engines that power the Airbus A320neo Family.

All eyes will be on what other orders and deals will be made throughout 2024 as the Singapore Airshow comes to a close this weekend.
