Rolls-Royce selected by Air Europa for Trent 1000 engines and service worth US$1.1bn
Spanish carrier Air Europa has selected Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines and TotalCare long term service support, worth US$1.1bn, for 14 new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. Air Europa already has eight Trent 1000-powered 787-8s on order that will enter service in 2016. Juan Jose Hidalgo, President of Globalia, the parent company of Air Europa, said: “We have plans to further expand our long-haul service and the Trent 1000 will deliver excellent economics through its performance and support service.” Rolls-Royce powered the very first Boeing 787 test flight in December 2009, the first 787-8 to enter service in October 2011, and the first 787-9 to enter service last year.
