Description: The PW4000 100-inch fan engines have been developed specially to power the Airbus A330-200 and -300 twin-engine, wide-body airliners. The engine family is certified for thrusts ranging from 64,500 to 68,600 pounds. PW4000 100-inch engines have outstanding performance, reliability and durability.

Rated at 68,600 pounds of thrust, the PW4168 powers the Airbus A330 airliner. The PW4168A model features a 4.5% increase in thrust for high altitude and hot take-off conditions. Approximately 50% of the engines powering the A330 jetliner all over the world are PW4000-94.

On 15 June 2005, Indian carrier Kingfisher Airlines placed an order with Airbus for five A330-200s to operate on regional routes; five A350-800s; and five double-deck A380-800s. Kingfisher Airlines will use the A350s and A380s on international routes. Deliveries of the A330s were planned to begin in the third quarter of 2007. Kingfisher will take delivery of the first A380 in 2010 and the first A350 in 2012. In July 2006 Kingfisher selected the PW4000-100 engine to power its A330-200 fleet. The deal including 10 installation engines, 1 spare, 1 option, maintenance services and 10 engine options was valued at $300 million (over $500 with options).
