SWISS Receives the First C Series Powered by Pratt & Whitney PurePower® Engines
Pratt & Whitney congratulates Bombardier and Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) on the delivery of the world's first C Series aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney PurePower engines.
The PurePower PW1500G engine is the exclusive engine for the Bombardier CS100 and CS300 aircraft. The PurePower engine family provides a 16 percent fuel burn reduction, a 50 percent reduction in regulated emissions and a 75 percent reduction in noise footprint. In communities surrounding an airport, approximately 500,000 fewer people will hear a GTF engine-powered aircraft take off than a conventional aircraft at the same airport.
The PW1500G engine received engine certification in February 2013, becoming the first certified engine in the PurePower engine family, and Pratt & Whitney is proud to have this engine one step closer to its first passenger flights with SWISS.
