Pratt & Whitney signed an agreement with SITA, an information technology provider with more than 70 years of experience serving more than 2,500 global customers. This data delivery agreement enhances engine health management services offered to Pratt & Whitney powered aircraft, growing Pratt & Whitney’s full-flight data capabilities for SITA’s global customers. 

“Engine maintenance exists for the full life of an engine,” said Joe Sylvestro, senior vice president of Aftermarket & Sustainment Operations at Pratt & Whitney. “Once an engine is produced, it then relies on Pratt & Whitney and our technicians to maintain, repair and overhaul it whenever needed. Working with data delivery solution providers like SITA, our capability of collecting full-flight data is expanded to a larger aircraft population. More customers are able to benefit from our engineers’ and technicians’ expertise and data-driven insights leading to proactive, preventative maintenance.” 

As the OEM, Pratt & Whitney is committed to driving maximum engine reliability and performance through its EngineWise® solutions. Working with SITA and its e-Aircraft® DataHub platform, Pratt & Whitney has expanded customers’ access to data.  

Yann Cabaret, CEO, SITA FOR AIRCRAFT, said: "e-Aircraft® DataHub is a multi-fleet and hardware-free solution, allowing Pratt & Whitney to retrieve data from virtually any aircraft and any airline around the world, while these airlines remain in full control of their data. Through SITA's unique data-brokering platform, Pratt & Whitney and airlines can collaborate effectively to gain invaluable, data-driven insights to improve their services across the board." 

This agreement between Pratt & Whitney and SITA is about meeting customers’ evolving needs and enhancing service to keep their operations running smoothly. Leveraging full flight data, Pratt & Whitney EngineWise Insights+ provides predictive maintenance recommendations that optimize performance, mitigate fleet disruptions, reduce customers’ operating costs and maximize time in the air.
