Pratt & Whitney expects approval for GTF engine on A220 jet in spring

MONTREAL, Jan 15 (Reuters) - A software update for the GTF engine on the A220 jet is expected in the spring, pending regulatory approval, Graham Webb, vice president of Pratt & Whitney commercial engine programs said on Wednesday.

Checks were ordered on the GTF on the Airbus plane last year following engine failures on aircraft operated by Lufthansa subsidiary Swiss. (Reporting by Allison Lampert in Montreal Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
