V2500® Program Reaches 6,000th Production Milestone

JetBlue to Receive 6,000th V2500® engine

EAST HARTFORD, Conn., Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IAE International Aero Engines AG reached a new production milestone when it shipped its 6,000th V2500 engine from the Pratt & Whitney Middletown Engine Center. The engine will be delivered to JetBlue Airways under the wing of an Airbus A321ceo aircraft in March.

"The V2500 fleet continues to grow with plans to produce approximately 500 engines in 2014," said Dave Brantner, president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines. "Long-time customers such as JetBlue rely on the reliability and operational efficiency of the V2500 engine."

JetBlue started operations in February 2000 with a V2500-powered A320. They are the largest A320ceo operator powered exclusively by V2500 engines, with 171 V2500-powered aircraft in service or on order. JetBlue was also the first North American operator to order A320neo and A321neo aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney PurePower® PW1100G-JM engines.

"We selected V2500 engines with our first order in 1999 to power our A320 family," said Mark Powers, chief financial officer, JetBlue Airways.  "IAE has a well-earned reputation for terrific quality in design, manufacturing and support. At JetBlue, we are careful in whom we call our business partners, and IAE has earned our highest respect. We are delighted to take delivery of the 6,000th V2500 engine, and we congratulate IAE International Aero Engines on this significant milestone."

JetBlue also received the 2,000th V2500 engine in 2002. In 2009, TAM received the 4,000th engine and SilkAir received the 5,000th engine in 2012. IAE's first V2500 engine delivery was to Cyprus Airways in 1989.
