Air New Zealand selects additional Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines
Air New Zealand has selected Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines and long-term TotalCare support for two additional Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. The airline has firmed up options on two of the aircraft, which will bring its total Trent 1000 powered fleet to 12. Air New Zealand was the first airline to order Trent 1000 engines in 2004. In July this year it became the first airline to receive a Boeing 787-9 aircraft.
