Rolls-Royce has won business worth $180 million as its share of an order for V2500 engines from China’s Hainan Airlines.
The engines, for a fleet of 20 Airbus A319s, will be maintained by a V2500Select services agreement. Deliveries begin in 2008.
The V2500 is produced by the International Aero Engines consortium (IAE) in which Rolls-Royce is a senior shareholder. V2500s are in service with over 1,300 A320 series and MD-90 aircraft.
