Cebu Pacific Air has selected Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines, backed up by a TotalCare long-term engine services programme, for the two new Airbus A330s it recently ordered.
Cebu Pacific already operates six of the type, all powered by Trent 700s. The engine has won more than 70% of new orders over the last four years and accounts for a similar percentage on future A330 deliveries. More than 1,600 Trent 700s are now in service or on firm order.
Lance Gokongwei, president and chief executive officer of Cebu Pacific, commented, “We have great experience of the Trent 700 in service and we look forward to its continuous delivery of outstanding economics and performance for our operations.”
Ewen McDonald, Rolls-Royce’s senior vice president, customers – civil aerospace, remarked, “We are honoured that Cebu Pacific has once again selected us to power this important element of the Cebu Pacific fleet.”
