Brazilian airline TAM Linhas Aereas has chosen P&W’s PW4000-100 engines to power two new Airbus A330s in a follow-on deal valued at more than $100 million. This new order is in addition to a previous contract for engines to power six new A330s announced last year. Sao Paulo-based TAM currently operates seven A330s, all with PW4168A engines.

The contract includes installed and spare engines for two firm A330-200s and a 12-year service agreement provided by P&W Global Service Partners.
“In a time of soaring fuel prices and growing environmental concerns, the P&W PW4000 engine – with the Advantage70 upgrade – gives excellent fuel efficiency and low maintenance costs for our new aircraft,” says Captain David Barioni Neto, president and CEO of TAM.
