INTERNATIONAL. Yemen Airways has awarded International Aero Engines (IAE) an order for V2500 engines to power 10 Airbus A320 aircraft. 

The agreement includes a long-term IAE aftermarket services agreement.  The value to Pratt & Whitney of the order and aftermarket agreement is approximately US$100 million.  Pratt & Whitney is a United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX) company and a major participant in IAE.

The agreement is for the latest V2500 SelectOne(TM) build standard with deliveries scheduled to begin in 2011.

It is compliant with the most stringent CAEP/6 NOx standards.  It entered service in October 2008.
