Pratt & Whitney Signs 5-year PW4000 Maintenance Contract with Israel’s EL AL
Israeli national air carrier EL AL has just signed a new five-year Maintenance and Service Agreement with Pratt & Whitney to provide maintenance services on more than a dozen additional PW4000 engines. This new contract is a supplement to the 27 EL AL engines that Pratt & Whitney already services. Established in in 1948, EL AL is the premier airline carrier in and around Israel. In combination with its partner companies, EL AL offers flights to hundreds of additional destinations worldwide. EL AL and Pratt & Whitney have been working together for more than 50 years, and this new agreement further solidifies their storied relationship.
EL AL vice-president of maintenance and engineering Yosef Baranzi had the following to say about the new contract:
"One of our core values is to work relentlessly and without compromise for our customers' safety. By working with Pratt & Whitney, we know that our engines are being maintained to the highest standards and with short turnaround time, which not only helps us achieve our safety goals, but also helps us to gain greater value from the engines."
The PW4000 engines that Pratt & Whitney maintains for EL AL are truly remarkable feats of engineering. PW4000 engines cover between 52,000 and 62,000 pounds of thrust and possess five different aircraft applications. The main benefits of the PW4000 are its durability, reliability, long on-wing times, superior fuel economy, and low maintenance costs. Additionally, the noise and emissions levels of the PW4000 are below current and anticipated industry standards. Since releasing the PW4000 to the market in 1987, Pratt & Whitney has manufactured over 2,500 engines that have altogether logged more than 120 million dependable flight hours.
With decades of mutual satisfaction between them, EL AL and Pratt & Whitney will likely continue their business relationship for years to come.
