Rolls-Royce has won an order from Hawaiian Airlines for Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines to power an additional Airbus A330 aircraft, supported by Rolls-Royce’s engine service, TotalCare®.
The airline already operates 23 Rolls-Royce powered A330 aircraft, and has previously placed an order for six A330neo aircraft, to be powered by the Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engine.
Marc Kup, senior director fleet transactions, Hawaiian Airlines, said: “We are very pleased to have selected the Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engine to power our new Airbus A330. This has proved to be a winning combination for us, delivering impressive efficiency and durability.”
Lewis Prebble, Rolls-Royce, senior vice president, customers – civil aerospace, said: “Hawaiian Airlines is a valued customer that continues to develop its fleet for future growth. We are delighted to be part of that story through the Trent 700 engine, which has proven itself to be the engine of choice for A330 customers.”
Earlier this month, Rolls-Royce was awarded a $1.7bn order from Singapore Airlines for Trent 1000 engines to power 19 Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The engines will be covered by Rolls-Royce’s flagship engine service, TotalCare®.
The order builds on a decades-long strong relationship between Rolls-Royce and Singapore Airlines. In addition to the Trent 1000, operated by its subsidiary Scoot, Singapore Airlines also operates the Trent XWB, Trent 900, Trent 800 and Trent 700.
