Air Costa has chosen Pratt & Whitney engines to power the 50 Embraer E-Jets E2 aircraft, with an additional 50 purchase rights, it has just ordered.

 Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2018. The PurePower Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine family has more than 5,000 orders and commitments, including options.

Air Costa is an Indian regional airline based in Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh. It is part of the LEPL Group and commenced scheduled operations in October 2013 using two Embraer E170 aircraft. Air Costa currently operates services with two-class E170 and E190 equipment on regional services through southern India.

“Our goal is to improve connectivity within India, more specifically, the secondary and tertiary cities,” said Lingamaneni Ramesh, Chairman, Air Costa. “We believe that Embraer’s E2 aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower engines will help us reach that goal.”

From light weight fan blades, cutting-edge materials and coatings, to advanced airfoil cooling, the suite of technologies in the GTF engine delivers the high efficiency with lower temperatures that drive improved durability with a lower overall cost of ownership.

“We are very proud that Air Costa has chosen to expand its fleet with PurePower engines on E-Jets E2 aircraft,” said Dave Brantner, president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines. “Already more than 50 customers from around the globe are showing their confidence in our PurePower engine technology, which has completed more than 7,600 hours of ground and flight testing.”
