Wednesday, 1 December 2010

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, will provide Trent 700 engines for six Hawaiian Airlines Airbus A330 aircraft, in a contract worth $420 million at list prices. The order includes a TotalCare® long-term services agreement.

Hawaiian Airlines already has ten Trent 700-powered A330s in service or on order and today’s order is incremental. The airline took delivery of its first Trent 700-powered A330 in May 2010. 

Chris Cyr, Rolls-Royce, Executive Vice President Customer Business – Americas, said: “Hawaiian Airlines is a valued customer and we are pleased that they have again put their trust in our leading edge technology and support services.  This contract underscores the market leading position of the Trent 700, the only engine designed specifically for the A330.”

Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian Airlines President and CEO said: “The Trent 700 delivers outstanding levels of performance and minimises our environmental impact.  We are delighted to be adding our new A330s to the TotalCare program, having seen the strong benefits with our B717 fleet.  We are pleased to continue Hawaiian’s long standing relationship with Rolls-Royce.”

During 2010, Rolls-Royce has won 13 of the 14 potential A330 engine selections, securing orders totaling over $5bn, to supply 73 aircraft.

There are now more than 1,300 Trent 700s in service or on firm order.  The engine offers outstanding levels of performance and delivers the best payload capacity.
