Pratt & Whitney announced (20-Jun-2013) new orders for more than 1000 engines, including options at the 2013 Paris Air Show. The company's new commercial engine announcements include orders from customers around the world for new 'PurePower', IAE V2500 and Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines. With new PurePower engine orders announced this week, Pratt & Whitney now has more than 4500 orders and commitments, including options, from more than 40 customers around the world, which helped the company maintain its lead position of more than 50% of A320neo engine orders. Pratt & Whitney president David Hess said the 'PurePower' engine "continues to achieve major milestones -- including last month's first test flight of the PW1100G-JM engine that will power the Airbus A320neo."
