Pratt & Whitney has been selected by Cebu Pacific Air to provide GTF engines to power an additional 10 A321neo and five A320neo aircraft.

Pratt & Whitney will also provide Cebu Pacific with GTF engine maintenance through an EngineWise Comprehensive service agreement.

Rick Deurloo, president of Commercial Engines at Pratt & Whitney said: “Pratt & Whitney has been providing GTF power to Cebu Pacific since 2019,” .

“With deliveries for this most recent order starting in 2025, the GTF engine will provide even more fuel and carbon emissions savings.”

Cebu Pacific currently has 33 GTF-powered A320neo family aircraft in service.

Prior to providing GTF power, Pratt & Whitney supplied JT8D engines for the airline’s DC-9 aircraft. Pratt & Whitney and Cebu Pacific’s relationship extends back to the 1990s.

Michael B. Szucs, chief executive officer of Cebu Pacific said: “We continue to grow the number of routes we offer to our passengers while benefitting from lower operating costs.

“Lower operating costs are a key component for us to continue our growth and the substantial improvements in fuel burn are a part of our ongoing commitment to reduce our environmental footprint.”
