Aegean Selects Pratt & Whitney GTF Engines to power 62 A320NEO Family Aircraft.

Wed Oct 24, 2018 10:52 am

"AEGEAN announced that has selected the Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engine to power up to 62 Airbus A320neo family aircraft: 30 firm, 12 option, and up to 20 leased aircraft."

"Pratt & Whitney will also provide the airline with engine maintenance through a long-term service agreement."

From the official Site of A3
https://en.about.aegeanair.com/media-ce ... f-engines/

It seems from 42 A320NEO Family Aircraft (30 firm +12 options)
They will also receive 20 more (leased).
The total now goes up to 62 AIRBUS A320NEO Family Aircraft!

Its good to see A3 grow more and can't wait to see the new route possibilities the new aircraft will open.
Hopefully they will consider the A321NEO LR as well.

Most of these will be replacing the older A320CEO that were either bought as old stock ie-Ex Olympic air frames, the A319 and early delivery factory new A320s (2007)

Amazing! Hope they keep up the expansion like that! Plus the A321 LR would fit it perfectly in their fleet. I hope they increase their ME presence as well!
A350/CSeries = bae

How many of those aircraft will be actually owned by the airline is a good question. On the other hand, it is good to see that they are able to renew their fleet and lower its average age...and remain competitive. Not to mention keeping their share of the market they so deserve!
