CHINA NORTHERN SELECTS PRATT & WHITNEY'S PW4000 ENGINES

 EAST HARTFORD, Conn., May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- China Northern Airlines has selected the PW4000 engine to power its new fleet of up to 15 Airbus A300-600R aircraft in an agreement worth nearly $400 million.
 For its six aircraft on firm order, the airline will purchase 12 installed and five spare engines worth $153 million. China Northern has options for up to nine A300s and would purchase 18 installed engines and five spares, if it exercises all options. Deliveries will begin in mid- 1994 and continue through the year 2000.
 China Northern, based in Shenyang, serves domestic routes throughout China and offers regional service in Asia. This marks the first time the airline has purchased wide-body aircraft. It currently operates a fleet of more than 20 Pratt & Whitney-powered MD-82s and two leased A300s.
 "China Northern is one of a number of airlines in China that have selected the PW4000 to power new, wide body aircraft," said Donald Lang, president of Pratt & Whitney-China. "China is seeing substantial traffic growth and its airlines need larger aircraft. The PW4000 gives them the modern technology they need with superior dependability."
 Some 1,000 PW4000 engines are in service at 60 airlines around the world, powering Airbus A300s and A310s, Boeing 767s and 747s, and the McDonnell Douglas MD-11. Growth versions of the engine have been selected for the new Airbus A330 and the Boeing 777.
 Pratt & Whitney is a unit of United Technologies Corporation, (NYSE: UTX) based in Hartford, Conn.
