On May 26, 2023, Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer SA addressed concerns over engine supplier Pratt & Whitney‘s recent troubles. Despite the durability problems faced by Pratt & Whitney’s latest jet engines, Embraer’s CEO, Arjan Meijer, expressed “full support” for the company. Meijer also hinted at an upcoming order from a US regional carrier, which suggests the use of a different engine version for the E175 flown by US airline affiliates.
However, the ongoing issues with Pratt & Whitney engines have caused disruptions for some airlines. KLM Cityhopper, a subsidiary of KLM, has had to make schedule changes due to engine problems. In India, over 50 IndiGo and Go First aircraft have been grounded due to supply chain issues with Pratt & Whitney engines.
The Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engine family is a dual-spool, axial-flow, high-bypass turbofan engine that succeeded the JT9D. Despite these challenges, Embraer remains optimistic about potential order announcements at the upcoming Paris Airshow.
