The national carrier Vietnam Airlines and American aerospace manufacturer Pratt & Whitney signed a $1.5 billion contract of the selection of aircraft engines and support services for 20 Airbus A321NEO aircraft.

The two parties also signed a memorandum of understanding on maintenance contracts covering these engines.

The deal between Vietnam Airlines and Pratt & Whitney includes 44 Pure Power Geared Turbofan (GTF) engines in accordance with comprehensive terms of warranty, maintenance and repair of engines.

President and CEO of Vietnam Airlines Dương Trí Thành said the signing ceremony marked a new step in the development of Vietnam Airlines’ A321 fleet.

Thành said the engine the firm chose was highly fuel efficient and especially environmentally friendly, and comes with comprehensive repair arrangements which help the firm to increase operational efficiency and save on operating expenses.

“I believe that the agreement between Vietnam Airlines and Pratt & Whitney will further reinforce the important economic, trade and investment partnership between Việt Nam and the US,” said Thành.

Speaking at the ceremony, senior vice president of sales, marketing and customer support at Pratt & Whitney, Rick Deurloo, said he was proud to celebrate this momentous occasion with Vietnam Airlines.

“We’ve been powering Vietnam Airlines since the early 1990s when the airline received its first PW4000-powered 767. We look forward to continuing our strong relationship and long history with Vietnam Airlines,” said Deurloo.

Since its first operation in 2016, the GTF engine has shown strong performance with a reduction of 16 per cent in fuel consumption, 50 per cent in emissions and 75 per cent noise compared with the current engine.
