JetSMART has selected GTF engines to power an additional 35 Airbus A320neo family aircraft, including nine A321XLR aircraft. Pratt & Whitney will also provide JetSMART with GTF engine maintenance through an EngineWise Comprehensive service agreement. JetSMART, an ultra low-cost carrier, selected the GTF engine to power 70 A320neo family aircraft in June 2019. The airline also operates an additional 15 leased GTF powered A320neo family aircraft and a fleet of 11 A320ceo family aircraft powered by the V2500 engine.

 Rick Deurloo, president of Commercial Engines at Pratt & Whitney, commented: "We are building upon our collaboration with JetSMART as they drive continued expansion in the Latin American market. With unmatched fuel efficiency, payload and range, GTF engines will enable JetSMART to open new routes across South America and fly more people, farther, with less fuel and lower carbon emissions."

 Estuardo Ortiz, CEO, JetSMART, said: "We are pleased to select additional GTF engines for our A320neo family fleet, as a key element to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 20%, with a 75% smaller noise footprint. All of this contributes to our ULCC model and commitment to low fares and sustainable aviation, providing a better experience to our customers." 

JetSMART has also concluded a support package with Pratt & Whitney for inspections of GTF engines, further strengthening the relationship as strategic partners. The Pratt & Whitney GTF engine, featuring Collins Aerospace nacelle and engine accessories, delivers industry-leading fuel efficiency and sustainability benefits for single-aisle aircraft. The engine's revolutionary geared fan architecture is the foundation for even more efficient and sustainable propulsion technologies in the decades ahead, with advancements like the Pratt & Whitney GTF Advantage engine and beyond.
