LATAM Orders US Engines to Power up A321neo Jets

June 5, 2023

New York — Latin American airline LATAM has chosen GTF engines to power its A320neo family aircraft, US aerospace manufacturer Pratt & Whitney said.

Combined with remaining options, the deal will total up to 146 aircraft. The company made an initial order selecting GTF engines to power more than 40 aircraft in 2013.

Pratt & Whitney noted that it will also provide the airline with engine maintenance through a long-term EngineWise Comprehensive service agreement.

LATAM currently operates more than 80 V2500-powered Airbus A320ceo and 16 GTF-powered Airbus A320neo family aircraft.

Headquartered in Santiago, Chile, LATAM was the first airline in the Americas to operate the Airbus A320neo aircraft.
