Congratulations to PW. Indigo also opted for a long term maintenance contract as per the article.

Engine maker Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp, and IndiGo signed an agreement for PurePower PW1100G-JM engines for the low-cost airline's 150 Airbus A320neo family aircraft. The agreement includes 300 firm PurePower PW1100G-JM engines with additional options and a long-term PureSolution(SM) maintenance agreement, according to a statement. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2015.

"With oil prices on the rise, we are more satisfied than ever with our selection of the Pratt & Whitney PurePower engine," said IndiGo President Aditya Ghosh. "As a result of the lower engine operating cost, we are confident that we can maintain our competitive low fares while simultaneously offering our customers the most environmentally friendly way to fly."

"This IndiGo order represents one of the largest engine orders in Pratt & Whitney's long history," said Todd Kallman, president, Commercial Engines & Global Services for Pratt & Whitney.

This is not a new order, but rather firming up a previously announced MOU.

P&W announced new A320neo engine selections from Norwegian Air Shuttle and Cebu Pacific.

Hooray for Pratt, and for all the jobs this order will bring in, in the US, Canada, and elsewhere!

Indeed, but still great news for PW. Where does the GTF / LeapX engine race stand now? IIRC I think the GTF is trailing, but a large amount of orders have not made engine selections yet.

Guys, I'd posted this earlier in the Farnborough engine thread!  

Do we want to merge the two?

Why?

It's very expensive for airlines to maintain large pools of parts inventories. There has been a clear trend in the industry with airlines increasingly turning to the engine OEMs for maintenance support.
