Rolls-Royce powers first delivery of Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to Air New Zealand
Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines will power the first delivery flight of the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, to Air New Zealand, ahead of the aircraft’s entry into service. The delivery flight marks a new era in the relationship between Air New Zealand and Rolls-Royce. The airline was the first to order Trent 1000 engines, for 10 Boeing 787-9s, in 2004.
