Garuda Indonesia extends Rolls-Royce Trent 700 TotalCare®
Tuesday, 20 July 2010
Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, announces that Garuda Indonesia has signed an additional contract for Rolls-Royce TotalCare® to support four leased Trent 700-powered A330-200 aircraft, for the next seven years.
Garuda Indonesia has been a Trent 700 customer since 1996 and already has a TotalCare agreement in place to cover the engines that power its first six A330s. This new contract extends cover across new, leased A330s.
Emirsyah Satar, CEO - Garuda Indonesia, said: “TotalCare has delivered significant improvements in aircraft availability and operations to our existing A330 fleet. This latest TotalCare agreement is a crucial part of our continued turnaround and growth, notably as we relaunch services to Europe with the A330s and develop our strategy to transform Garuda into one of Asia’s most successful and profitable airlines.”
Nick Devall, Executive Vice President - Civil Aerospace, Rolls-Royce said: “This order demonstrates the value that TotalCare has already provided Garuda Indonesia for its existing fleet and further develops the long and successful partnership between the airline and Rolls-Royce.”
TotalCare® is a flexible approach to meeting an operator's specific engine support needs. It provides a single source solution ensuring "peace of mind" for the lifetime of the engine, from the time the engine is delivered to the customer until the engine goes out of service.
