Scoot Takes Delivery of its First A320neo Aircraft Powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF™ Engines

Published: October 2018


TOULOUSE, October 8, 2018: Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp. and Scoot Tigerair Pte Ltd (Scoot), celebrated delivery of the airline’s first A320neo aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF engines. Pratt & Whitney will also provide Scoot with engine maintenance through a 12-year EngineWise™ Comprehensive service agreement.

“The delivery of our first 320neo aircraft signals the start of our renewal program for the current narrow body Scoot fleet alongside network growth. Powered by the new P&W Geared Turbofan (GTF) engines, the 320neo will offer our customers the experience of a modern aircraft while providing significant economic and environmental benefits” said Scoot CEO, Mr Lee Lik Hsin.

Scoot, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines Group, currently has on order 39 firm A320neo aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF engines, with options for 11 additional aircraft. The airline, based in Singapore, also operates a fleet of 26 V2500-powered A320ceo aircraft.

The GTF engine is currently serviced by engine centers at Pratt & Whitney, MTU Aero Engines (MTU), Japanese Aero Engines Corporation (JAEC), Lufthansa Technik (LHT) and, most recently announced, at Delta TechOps. The Pratt & Whitney Singapore Engine Center, a joint venture between Pratt & Whitney and SIA Engineering Company (SIAEC), will provide engine maintenance for GTF engines starting in 2019, and will serve as a maintenance hub in the region

“We’ve built a long-term relationship with Singapore Airlines dating back to 1972 with their operation of JT8D, JT9D and PW4000 engines, and we are thrilled to support Scoot and their fleet expansion with the GTF-powered A320neos,” said Rick Deurloo, senior vice president of sales, marketing and customer support at Pratt & Whitney. “The GTF engine will enable Scoot to reduce fuel, noise and emissions for many years to come.”

Since entering into service in early 2016, the GTF engine has demonstrated its promised ability to reduce fuel burn by 16 percent, to reduce NOx emissions by 50 percent and to lower the noise footprint by 75 percent.
