Pratt & Whitney sees supply chain progress


PARIS (Reuters) – Pratt & Whitney is seeing “solid progress” in the aerospace supply chain after bottlenecks caused by the pandemic, Shane Eddy, president of engine maker Pratt & Whitney, said at the Paris Airshow on Wednesday.

The Raytheon Technologies subsidiary, which has faced a backlash from airlines over durability problems and a shortage of spare engines, has the capacity in place to support maintenance demand but faces shortages of materials, he added.
