Emirates Airline signed a $2.2 billion TotalCare long term services contract with Rolls-Royce, covering Trent engines for 70 Airbus A350XWB aircraft.
This contract brings the airline’s entire Rolls-Royce powered fleet of 128 aircraft under TotalCare arrangements.
“Emirates’ 70 A350 aircraft on order will play an important role in our growth when they come online in the next few years. This TotalCare contract with Rolls-Royce is an important step in ensuring our A350 XWB engine's life cycle cost is managed effectively and maintained at the highest standards,” said Tim Clark, President, Emirates Airline.
“We are delighted to sign this contract with Emirates, a valued customer with three Trent engine family members already in service,” added Mark King, Rolls-Royce, President – Civil Aerospace.
TotalCare long-term service agreements, in place on 90 per cent of all Trent engines, are designed to minimize customer financial risk and enhance operational performance and reliability, allowing operators to concentrate on their core business.
The new TotalCare contract for Trent XWB engines comes two months after Rolls-Royce won a $1.2 billion TotalCare contract for Trent 700 engines powering 27 Airbus A330s and Trent 800 engines powering 21 Boeing 777s.
