Pratt to improve efficiency of Russian carrier's fleet

East Hartford aerospace manufacturer Pratt & Whitney has signed an agreement with S7 Airlines for a 12-year program designed to improve the reliability of the Russian carrier's fleet.

Terms were not disclosed Tuesday. S7 Airlines is Russia's biggest domestic airline.

The agreement to deploy Pratt's so-called "EngineWise" fleet management program covers S7 Airlines' fleet of 30 Airbus A320neo and A321neo family of aircraft propelled by the Pratt's PurePower geared turbofan engines.

"This further strengthens our relationship with Pratt & Whitney after taking delivery of GTF-powered A320neo aircraft this past July," said Vladimir Obyedkov, CEO, S7 Airlines.

Pratt is a division of Farmington-based United Technologies Corp.
