Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX) business, Pratt & Whitney have revealed the GTF Advantage engine, the world’s most fuel efficient, sustainable single-aisle aircraft engine.  This engine for Airbus A320neo family aircraft extends the economic and environmental benefits of the existing GTF engine.  The new configuration reduces fuel consumption and extends the engine’s lead as the most efficient powerplant for the A320neo family.  The engine decreases fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 17% compared to previous generation engines.  The GTF Advantage engine will be compatible with 100% percent sustainable aviation fuel at initial entry into service which will help the industry meet its commitment to net zero emissions by 2050.  “GTF engines met or exceeded fuel, emissions and noise commitments from day one and have since achieved a strong record of dependability and low operating cost,” said Carroll Lane, president of Commercial Engines at Pratt & Whitney. “GTF Advantage provides even more value to our customers, both in revenue potential and environmental impact, with lower fuel burn and new route opportunities.”

“We always said our geared fan architecture has a long runway for growth and future development, and the GTF Advantage demonstrates this. Our gear system, and the overall engine architecture it enables, are foundational to unlock the benefits of advanced aerodynamics, materials and systems. We are committed to continuing to invest in these technologies for the next generation of commercial aircraft.”
