Rolls-Royce welcomes the decision by Iran Air to acquire 18 Airbus A330neo and 16 A350-1000 aircraft, which are powered exclusively by the Trent 7000 and Trent XWB engines respectively.

In addition, Rolls-Royce looks forward to having the opportunity to provide engines for 27 A330ceo and 12 A380 aircraft that Iran Air is also to acquire.

Dominic Horwood, Rolls-Royce, Director, Customers & Services - Civil Aerospace, said: “We welcome this decision by Iran Air to select Rolls-Royce powered aircraft and, consistent with the improved regulatory environment that now exists, we look forward to supporting the modernisation of commercial aviation in Iran.”

The Trent 7000, the exclusive power plant for the Airbus A330neo, is the seventh member of the Trent family which has become the engine of choice in the wide body market over the last 20 years. The Trent 7000 is scheduled to enter service in 2017.

The Trent XWB, the world’s most efficient large aero engine, is the fastest-selling wide-body engine with more than 1,500 engines sold to 41 customers. The A350-1000 is powered by the higher thrust version of the engine, the Trent XWB-97.

ANA Group Selects Rolls-Royce Engines Worth $300m for Airbus A380 Aircraft
(Source: Rolls-Royce plc; issued Jan 29, 2016)
Rolls-Royce will provide ANA Group with Trent 900 engines, worth $300m, for three new Airbus A380 aircraft.

The decision reinforces the Trent 900’s position as the engine of choice on the A380. It has been selected by the majority of A380 customers and has more than 50 per cent market share.

The selection of the Trent 900 further strengthens the relationship between Rolls-Royce and ANA Group. Rolls-Royce is currently providing Trent 1000 engines for all of ANA’s Boeing 787 Dreamliners.

Dominic Horwood, Rolls-Royce, Director, Customers & Services - Civil Aerospace, said: “ANA Group is an extremely respected and valued customer and we are honoured that they have chosen us again to power their new airplane. The Trent 900 is the clear engine of choice on the A380 and we look forward to seeing the A380 and Trent 900 flying with ANA Group.”

The Trent 900 powered the first commercial A380 flight in 2007 and is now used by eight operators and has accumulated 5.5 million in-service flight hours. The engine offers the lowest lifetime fuel burn, with the latest version including technology developed for the Trent XWB and Trent 1000 engines.

The order announced today will result in an increase in the Group’s order book of $300m, in accordance with Group accounting policy
