 PRATT & WHITNEY ANNOUNCES THAT SHANGHAI AIRLINES
 EXPANDS PW2000-POWERED 757 FLEET
 EAST HARTFORD, Conn., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Shanghai Airlines has ordered Pratt & Whitney PW2000 engines to power five Boeing 757 airliners. The engine order is worth $72.5 million to Pratt & Whitney.
 Under the terms of today's announcement, Pratt & Whitney will supply Shanghai Airlines with 12 PW2000 engines, including spares. Deliveries of the aircraft to the airline are scheduled to begin in 1993 and extend through 1997.
 Shanghai Airlines currently operates three PW2000-powered 757s. This order will enable the airline to expand its domestic operations within the People's Republic of China.
 The PW2000 offers its customers a 7 percent fuel burn advantage vs. the competition, and reliability statistics comparable to the service experience of a more mature engine. Advanced design features for longer life and more efficient operation include single crystal blades, active clearance control and a proven, third-generation Hamilton Standard full authority digital electronic control (FADEC). The FADEC simplifies engine operation while reducing fuel and maintenance costs.
 The PW2000 provides thrust ranging from 38,250 pounds to 41,700 pounds. Since entering service on the 757 in 1984, it has logged more than 3.5 million flight hours.
 Thirteen customers have placed orders for more than 1,100 engines to power some 500 757 twinjets.
 Pratt & Whitney is a unit of United Technologies Corporation (NYSE: UTX) of Hartford, Conn. UTC provides a broad range of high technology products and services to the aerospace, building systems and automotive industries.
