GP7200 Engine Reliability Boost 

Airbus A380 customers flying the Engine Alliance GP7200 are seeing high reliability rates even though the turbofan has only been in service for 18 months. Departure reliability has now reached 99.9%, with no inflight shutdowns, says the General Electric/Pratt & Whitney joint venture.

So far, nine GP7200-powered aircraft are in operation with Emirates—the largest A380 customer—and Air France, Europe’s first A380 operator. Air Austral, Etihad, International Lease Finance Corp. and Korean Air also are GP7200 customers.
