Aircraft maker Irkut said it picked United Technologies’s Pratt & Whitney to supply the engine for its passenger airliner that will enter service in 2016.

Pratt & Whitney will supply PW1000G engines for the MC-21 airplane that seats 150 to 212 passengers, Irkut said. Rockwell Collins will supply avionics jointly with Russia’s Koncern Avionika.
