Hong Kong Airlines selects Rolls-Royce Trent 700 for new A330 fleet
Hong Kong Airlines has chosen Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines to power its new fleet of 20 Airbus A330-300s. Including a TotalCare® long-term services agreement, the value of the business is around $1.2 billion at list prices. Deliveries start in 2010.
The announcement maintains the Trent 700’s 100 per cent record in mainland China, where it has been selected for all 125 A330s in service or on order. Hong Kong Airlines is a new customer for Rolls-Royce.
Ren Weidong, Executive Chairman of Hong Kong Airlines, said: “The Trent 700 is clearly the best solution for our A330 fleet. Its outstanding reliability and operational flexibility mean it does not limit the routes that our aircraft can operate, giving our passengers maximum choice.”
Steve Miller, Vice President, Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace – China, added: "We are delighted to have Hong Kong Airlines as a new Trent customer, building on the Trent 700’s successful position in China, and are excited to be part of their dynamic growth plans. We look forward to working closely with them to ensure a smooth entry into service and the successful operation of their new Trent-powered fleet.”
