AIRSHOW-Pratt says geared turbofan burns 15-16 pct less fuel

PARIS, June 18 (Reuters) - Pratt & Whitney said at the Paris Airshow on Tuesday that its new geared turbofan engine would enter service with 15 or 16 percent lower fuel burn than current-generation engines.

The unit of United Technologies said test data on the engines showed that these performance levels were actually being achieved and were not just design targets.
