Vistara Signs V2500 Engine Services Agreement with Pratt & Whitney

Vistara, a TATA SIA JV and India’s fastest growing full service carrier, has signed a V-Services agreement to maintain its fleet of 26 V2500® engines.

The V2500 engine is offered through IAE International Aero Engines AG, a multinational aero engine consortium whose shareholders comprise Pratt & Whitney (NYSE:UTX), Pratt & Whitney Aero Engines International GmbH, Japanese Aero Engines Corporation and MTU Aero Engines.

“Since our operational launch, we have been able to achieve on-time performance (OTP) in excess of 90% and we want to consistently maintain that superior level of service for our customers. We needed a reliable and effective maintenance partner and we are confident that the V-Services agreement with Pratt & Whitney will help us minimize unscheduled removal of engines and provide the highest standards of safety,” said Phee Teik Yeoh, CEO, Vistara.

“Vistara has done a remarkable job in its initial phase and we are excited to support this full service carrier as it continues to grow in the Indian market,” said Greg Gernhardt, president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines. “Our job is to help Vistara, maintain a superior level of service with consistent high on-time performance and provide safe and reliable air travel for their customers as we take care of the engines.” At present, Vistara offers 245 weekly frequencies to 10 destinations in India, including Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Pune, Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Goa, Guwahati and Bagdogra.
