Driven by an industry-first geared architecture, the Pratt & Whitney GTF™ is unlike any engine that’s come before it. The result of over 20 years of innovation and more than 40 groundbreaking technologies, the Pratt & Whitney GTF™ delivers significant reductions in fuel burn, noise, and regulated emissions.

The Pratt & Whitney GTF™ powers a new generation of commercial aircraft platforms, with an extraordinary runway for growth, scalability, and innovation. Industry-disrupting technologies are what set the Pratt & Whitney GTF™ apart, and the engine’s revolutionary architecture allows for future evolution and performance enhancements.

The performance of the Pratt & Whitney GTF™ is enhancing how and where airlines fly. Reduced fuel burn allows operators to extend routes by using the same amount of fuel, creating options for routes that didn’t exist before and making point-to-point destinations more available to the flying public.

Since entering service, Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engines have compiled more than 2.4 million engine revenue hours and demonstrated an ability to reduce fuel burn by 16-20%, saving customers 130 million gallons of fuel to date. The Pratt & Whitney GTF™ also significantly reduces regulated emissions, which has led to 1.3 million metric tonnes of carbon emissions avoided so far, and it lowers the noise footprint by 75%.
