New Delhi: Pratt & Whitney (PW) on Thursday claimed to have unveiled “the world’s most fuel-efficient and sustainable single-aisle aircraft engine” — GTF Advantage engine — for the Airbus A320neo family of aircraft.

The American aerospace major claims this “reduces fuel consumption by an additional 1%.”

“In total, the engine decreases fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 17% compared to prior-generation engines. Additionally, the GTF Advantage engine will be compatible with 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at entry into service, helping the industry meet its commitment to net zero emissions by 2050,” it said in a statement.

PW claims the new engine delivers higher thrust, increasing range, payload and unlocking more destinations for airlines.

The current generation of PW GRF engines for the Airbus A320neo family reduces fuel consumption and carbon emissions by 16% compared to prior-generation engines and are certified to operate on 50% SAF, it says.
