Pratt & Whitney to power 15 more aircraft for Cebu Pacific Air

- Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engines selected for follow-on A320neo and A321neo order

Pratt & Whitney, an RTX business, was selected by Cebu Pacific Air (Cebu Pacific) to provide GTF engines to power an additional 10 A321neo and five A320neo aircraft. Pratt & Whitney will also provide Cebu Pacific with GTF engine maintenance through an EngineWise® Comprehensive service agreement.

“Pratt & Whitney has been providing GTF power to Cebu Pacific since 2019, with deliveries for this most recent order starting in 2025, the GTF engine will provide even more fuel and carbon emissions savings.”

Rick Deurloo, president of Commercial Engines at Pratt & Whitney

Cebu Pacific currently has 33 GTF-powered A320neo family aircraft in service. Prior to providing GTF power, Pratt & Whitney supplied JT8D engines for the airline’s DC-9 aircraft. Pratt & Whitney and Cebu Pacific’s relationship extends back to the 1990s.

“We continue to grow the number of routes we offer to our passengers while benefitting from lower operating costs. Lower operating costs are a key component for us to continue our growth and the substantial improvements in fuel burn are a part of our ongoing commitment to reduce our environmental footprint.”

Michael B. Szucs, chief executive officer of Cebu Pacific
