Bahrain flag carrier Gulf Air is to extend Rolls-Royce TotalCare® service support for Trent 700 engines on 6 Airbus A330 aircraft.

“We are happy to extend our agreement with Rolls-Royce. We are very pleased with the support offered by TotalCare, as it maximises engine availability and provides forward visibility of service costs,” Gulf Air Acting Chief Executive Officer, Maher Salman Al Musallam, said.

“We are pleased Gulf Air is extending TotalCare with us and continues to see value in our support services. We look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship with the airline,” Andrew Harper, Rolls-Royce, Vice President - Customers, Civil Large Engines, said.

Globally, more than 90% of Trent engines in service and on order are covered by TotalCare. The Trent 700, the only engine specifically designed for the A330, is the market leader on the aircraft with 70 per cent of new orders over the last four years.

The relationship between Gulf Air and Rolls-Royce stretches back to 1966, when the airline ordered a Dart-powered Fokker 27 aircraft. Gulf Air has operated its A330s since 1999.

Rolls-Royce is a world-leading provider of power systems and services for use on land, at sea and in the air, and has established a strong position in global markets – civil aerospace, defence aerospace, marine and energy.

As a result, Rolls-Royce has a broad customer base comprising more than 300 airlines, 4,000 corporate and utility aircraft and helicopter operators, 160 armed forces, more than 4,000 marine customers, including 70 navies, and energy customers in more than 80 countries.
