Pratt & Whitney Gets $233 Million Air China Order

NEW YORK (AP) -- Pratt & Whitney said on Monday it won a $233 million contract to supply engines for 22 new Airbus A320s and A321s to be flown by Air China.

The engine maker, a unit of United Technologies Corp., said the contract includes a long-term aftermarket agreement.

Air China already operates the same engine, the V2500, on 12 A319s.

The Air China deal was the third announced by Pratt & Whitney on Monday at the Paris Air Show. It also said it signed a three-year, $75 million parts repair agreement with Japan Airlines, and a $300 million deal for engines for six new Airbus A330 aircraft for Korean Air.

United Technologies shares fell $1.31, or 2.4 percent, to $54.53 in midday trading.
