Pratt & Whitney wins contract for Embraer's new E-Jets-source
SAO PAULO Jan 8 (Reuters) - Pratt & Whitney has won a deal to supply engines for planemaker Embraer's revamped family of regional E-Jets, an industry source with knowledge of the decision told Reuters on Tuesday.
Pratt & Whitney, a unit of United Technologies Corp, edged out the E-Jets' current engine supplier, General Electric Co, as well as Rolls Royce in the bidding.
With approval from its board of directors in coming months, Brazil's Embraer SA, the world's third-largest commercial planemaker, plans to re-engine its E-Jet lineup to offer more fuel-efficient planes beginning in 2018.
