Rolls-Royce has delivered its 1,000th Trent XWB–84 engine, achieving another key milestone for the engine programme. The Trent XWB–84, which will power an Airbus A350-900, was built at the company’s state-of-the-art Production Test Facility in Derby, England.

The Trent XWB-84 is the latest in the Trent family to reach this milestone, and has done so faster than any of its predecessors. Following its entry into service in 2015, the Trent XWB-84, quickly became the fastest-selling large engine of all time. It has now achieved more than eight million engine flying hours in service with more than 30 operators, demonstrating its versatility and capability by flying a range of different routes, from short-range segments to ultra-long-range flights of more than 18 hours.
