Hearing too much noise? Let’s clear the air. The Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-JM engine is fully certified and meets performance and contract specifications, delivering 16% better fuel efficiency, 50% reduction in overall emissions, and 75% reduction in noise footprint while yielding a better than 99% reliability rate.

The Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-JM engine has been delivered to three airlines, including to GoAir just this week, and is in revenue service today on two continents. Customers know the Pratt & Whitney PurePower engine family has completed more than 58,000 cycles and 35,000 hours of testing to date and is meeting or exceeding all its performance specifications at entry-into-service. We have resolved the very few initial teething items airlines have experienced. Production engines shipping today to Airbus already include hardware and software improvements. In fact, solutions for the items are well known and have been extensively covered in detail by the media.​
