Aercap selects Rolls-Royce Trent 700 for A330s
The Rolls-Royce Trent 700 has been selected by Dutch aircraft leasing company, AerCap Holdings N.V., to power 10 firm Airbus A330s, with options for a further three. Deliveries of the Trent-powered aircraft are due to begin in 2009.
AerCap has also established a framework agreement with Rolls-Royce under which TotalCare services provision will be offered to all airline customers.
Klaus Heinemann, Chief Executive Officer of AerCap said: “The success of the Trent 700 in the marketplace proves that it is a valuable addition to any A330 lease fleet. We are also confident in the TotalCare services offering that will provide us, and our customers, with significant value throughout the operating life of the engine.”
Mark King, Chief Commercial Officer, Civil Aerospace for Rolls-Royce, added: “The Trent 700 has the largest market share on the A330 and the continuous improvement and incorporation of advanced Trent family technology will offer increased benefits to customers, including the lowest fuel burn of any engine on the A330. We’re pleased to welcome AerCap as a new Trent customer and look forward to working together in the future as their widebody fleet grows.”
In the last three years, the Trent 700 has won more than 80 per cent of A330 engine competitions featuring aircraft leasing companies and it remains the market-leading engine for the A330.
