Rolls-Royce joins celebrations as Cathay Pacific receives first A350-1000

Rolls-Royce has joined Cathay Pacific Airways to celebrate the delivery of its first Airbus A350-1000, powered by the Trent XWB-97, the latest version of the Trent XWB, the most efficient large aero engine in service today.

Greeted by aviation enthusiasts, the aircraft arrived in Hong Kong on June 20, making Cathay Pacific the first airline in the Greater China region to receive an A350-1000. Cathay Pacific has ordered a total of 20 A350-1000 aircraft, and the engines are all fully covered by Rolls-Royce’s flagship TotalCare® service.

Rolls-Royce has supplied engines to Cathay Pacific for more than 40 years and the celebrations today mark another important step on that journey. The delivery also highlights the continued success of the Trent XWB, the fastest selling widebody jet engine ever, with over 1,700 engines ordered by 45 customers worldwide.
