Pratt & Whitney to power 15 additional single-aisle aircraft for Cebu Pacific

N8 Allen /

Low-cost carrier Cebu Pacific has selected aerospace manufacturer Pratt & Whitney to power its follow-on order for 10 A321neo and five A320neo aircraft with the GTF line of engines.

The 15 narrowbody jets are part of an order made in 2019, which included 16 A330neo aircraft. The engines for the narrowbody have not been selected until today. 

The announcement was made on February 20, 2024, at the Singapore Airshow, which is held until February 25, 2024.

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

 “Pratt & Whitney has provided GTF power to Cebu Pacific since 2019,” Rick Deurloo, president of Commercial Engines at Pratt & Whitney, said in a press statement. “With deliveries for this most recent order starting in 2025, the GTF engine will provide even more fuel and carbon emissions savings.”

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

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.
