SÃO PAULO, Brazil, November 25, 2019 – Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), joined Binter in celebrating the delivery of the airline’s first Embraer E195-E2 aircraft. The Embraer E-Jets E2 aircraft family, including the E195-E2, is exclusively powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engines. The delivery was commemorated in a ceremony at Embraer’s headquarters in São José dos Campos, São Paulo, Brazil.

“We are delighted to be the first airline in Europe to fly the Pratt & Whitney GTF-powered Embraer E195-E2 aircraft,” said Pedro Agustin del Castillo Machado, president, Binter. “This new milestone, which coincides with the celebration of the 30th anniversary of Binter, adds more advances to the ones that we have made in recent years, and that help to pursue our main objective: the improvement of the connecting of the Canary Islands, both inter-island and with external destinations.”

Binter flies 3.6 million passengers to their destination every year, including inter-island, domestic and international routes. The Spanish airline, which currently operates a fleet of ATR-72 and CRJ1000 aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney PW100 turboprop engines, has five E195-E2 aircraft on firm order. Pratt & Whitney will also provide Binter with engine maintenance through an EngineWise® Comprehensive service agreement.

“We are thrilled that the fuel-efficient GTF engines will enable Binter to increase its route offerings,” said Rick Deurloo, chief customer officer and senior vice president, Customers at Pratt & Whitney. “With EngineWise Comprehensive service, we will support Binter in optimizing engine performance and keeping their operations running smoothly.”

In addition to being selected as the exclusive engine provider for the E2 commercial aircraft, Pratt & Whitney’s APS2600E auxiliary power unit (APU) is the sole-sourced APU for the E2 family. The APS2600E APU gives airlines greater flexibility, by increasing the altitude ceiling for Extended-range Twin-engine Operational Performance Standards (ETOPS) and other operations, and providing a significant increase in electrical power delivery, to meet the needs of today’s airlines.

The E195-E2 aircraft has more than 25.4% reduction in fuel burn per seat than the previous-generation E195, with NOx emissions 50% below the ICAO CAEP/6 regulation and 19dB to 20dB of ICAO Chapter 4 cumulative noise margin.
