Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has won a $280m order, at list prices, from Garuda Indonesia Airlines for Trent 700 engines to power four Airbus A330 aircraft. In addition, the airline confirmed a previous order for Trent 700 engines to power six A330s, which was announced last year. All ten aircraft will have long-term TotalCareâ service support.
Emirsyah Satar, Chief Executive Officer, Garuda Indonesia Airlines, said: "We are pleased to select additional Rolls-Royce engines to support the growth of our A330 fleet. In addition, TotalCare has delivered significant improvements in aircraft availability and operations to our existing A330 fleet and this will continue with our latest aircraft."
Nick Devall, Rolls-Royce, Chief Commercial Officer – Civil Aerospace, said: "Garuda Indonesia Airlines is a valued customer and we are pleased that they have again put their trust in our leading edge technology and support services. This contract underscores the market leading position of the Trent 700, the only engine designed specifically for the A330.”
The Trent 700, the only engine specifically designed for the A330, remains the market leader for the aircraft, with more than 1,400 either in service on order, and achieving more than 75 per cent of new orders over the last three years. The order brings the total number of Garuda’s Trent 700 powered A330s to 20, all supported by TotalCare.
