Trent 1000 powers ALC

Air Lease Corporation (ALC) has announced a $160 million order at list prices for Trent 1000 engines to power four Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.

The order marks the first Trent 1000 selection by the US aircraft leasing company.

Steven Udvar-Hazy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Air Lease Corporation, said:

"This is ALC’s first selection of Trent 1000 technology, which will power our 787-9 aircraft. We look forward to receiving these engines, which are demonstrating excellent operational performance and environmental efficiency and will help deliver real advantages to our customers."

Eric Schulz, Rolls-Royce, President – Civil Large Engines, added: "We are delighted that Air Lease Corporation has become a significant new customer for our Trent 1000 engine technology. The engine is the quietest and most efficient engine on the Dreamliner and has delivered a smooth 787 entry into service for customers on three continents."

The Trent 1000 was the first engine to power the 787 Dreamliner into service in October 2011 and has achieved more than 99.9 per cent engine dispatch reliability. It is also the launch engine for the Boeing 787-9 and has been selected to power Singapore Airlines 787-10X aircraft, subject to Boeing confirmation of the programme.
