Rolls-Royce has signed contracts for its Trent 1000 and Trent 700 engines with Singapore Airlines at the Singapore Airshow.
The airline formally confirmed a US$1.7 billion order for the Trent 1000 engines to power 19 Boeing 787 Dreamliners, which will be covered by Rolls-Royce’s flagship TotalCare® engine support service. The order was originally announced in February last year, and was in addition to an order for Trent 1000 engines for 50 aircraft made by the SIA Group in 2013.
The airline is preparing for the entry into service of its first B787-10 aircraft powered by the latest version of the Trent 1000, the Trent 1000 TEN (Thrust, Efficiency, New Technology).
Singapore Airlines also signed a contract for SelectCare support for Trent 700 engines that power 11 Airbus A330 aircraft. SelectCare is a fixed price overhaul agreement allowing customers to benefit from Rolls-Royce’s engine health monitoring and aftermarket capability.
In addition to the Trent 1000, which is currently operated by Singapore Airlines’ low-fare subsidiary Scoot, the airline also operates Trent XWB, Trent 900, Trent 800 and Trent 700 engines.
