EAST HARTFORD, Conn. - Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp., has announced the certification of its customer training center in Hyderabad by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, which is the Indian civil aviation regulator. This is a major milestone for United Technologies Corporation India Private Limited ("Pratt & Whitney Customer Training Center India"), as it allows the company to provide DGCA CAR147-approved training to aircraft engineers and technicians from Pratt & Whitney's airline customers in the region. This Pratt & Whitney training center, established to enhance the skills of the work force in India's aviation industry, is only the third such Pratt & Whitney facility in the world.

The certification means that the training center is now fully approved to offer DGCA-approved training sessions on V2500-A5 engines. It is expected to soon also offer courses on PW1100G-JM and other models from the PurePower® Geared Turbofan (GTF) family of engines.

According to Palash Roy Chowdhury, country manager, Pratt & Whitney, UTC India, this certification marks a significant step for Pratt & Whitney in India, and the company will continue to invest in talent and infrastructure to support the industry's growth.

Pratt & Whitney has a strong presence in India and has been doing business there for more than 60 years. Today there are well over 100 aircraft in India powered by V2500 engines made by Pratt & Whitney and International Aero Engines AG, a consortium in which Pratt & Whitney is a majority shareholder. While the company is now delivering the PurePower Geared Turbofan engines for Airbus aircraft ordered by IndiGo and Go Air, upcoming deliveries are planned for Air Costa as well. The GTF engine delivers a 16 percent improvement in fuel burn, a 75 percent reduction in noise footprint and a 50 percent reduction in emissions, and is a benchmark that is transforming aviation and revolutionizing modern flight.

CALGARY - The Canadian airline WestJet intends to launch a new ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC) in Canada, subject to agreement with its pilots and any required regulatory approvals. Plans call for the ULCC to begin service in late 2017 with an initial fleet of 10 high-density Boeing 737-800s.

"We have built WestJet from its low-cost, regional roots into a renowned international airline with service to 21 countries and today it's all about disrupting at the price-sensitive end of the market," said Clive Beddoe, WestJet chairman. "Launching a ULCC will broaden WestJet's growth opportunities and open new market segments by offering more choice to those Canadians looking for lower fares."

"The worldview on low-cost airlines has changed since the launch of WestJet in 1996 and we are responding," said Gregg Saretsky, WestJet president and CEO. "The complete unbundling of services and products in order to lower fares for the price-sensitive traveler has created the ULCC category and our new airline will provide Canadians a pro-competitive, cheap, and cheerful flying experience from a company with a proven track record."

WestJet, and its regional airline subsidiary WestJet Encore, currently provides scheduled service to more than 100 destinations in North America, Central America, the Caribbean, and Europe.
