Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) has signed a multi-year engine services agreement with FLY91 for the MRO of the PW127M engines that power its fleet of ATR 72-600 turboprop passenger aircraft.

Manoj Chacko, managing director and chief executive of FLY91, said: “The agreement with Pratt & Whitney Canada is a significant step in assuring we can provide our customers with dependable regional air travel from our base at Goa’s Manohar International Airport.

“We are committed to reliable, sustainable, and scalable air transportation services to build India’s regional connectivity. We strongly believe that our ATR aircraft powered by P&WC’s PW127M engines will help us achieve just that.”

FLY91 is India’s new regional airline brand by Just Udo Aviation Private Limited, and intends to increase its fleet by the end of 2024 to provide local connectivity to underserved cities in the country.

Irene Makris, vice president of customer service at P&WC, said: “Availability is a key factor by which airlines are evaluated from a customer service perspective. The ability of a commercial aircraft to take off as scheduled often depends on the readiness and reliability of its engines.

“We have 40 years of experience in the maintenance of the PW100 engine family and we’re confident we can help FLY91 enjoy excellent dispatch reliability for its ATR 72-600 fleet and fully meet passenger expectations.”

FLY91 is a pure-play regional airline headquartered in Goa, founded by industry veterans and backed by professional funding. The airline says it is committed to enhancing last-mile air connectivity and will connect over 50 cities across India in the next five years.

As part of this plan, FLY91 will induct 30 aircraft into its fleet which will be based at multiple hubs across the country.
