Rolls-Royce Wins $2.6Bn Order from Singapore Airlines

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has won a US$2.6bn order, at list prices, from Singapore Airlines for Trent engines to power 20 Airbus A350-900 and five Airbus A380 aircraft. The order includes long-term TotalCare® service support.

Nick Devall, Rolls-Royce Chief Commercial Officer - Civil Aerospace, said: "We are very pleased that Singapore Airlines has continued to select Trent engines. This order further demonstrates the airline's commitment to both Trent XWB and Trent 900 technology and our comprehensive TotalCare ® support services. We look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship with Singapore Airlines."

The Trent 900 powers the Airbus A380 and has been selected by 11 of 17 airlines who operate the aircraft. The Trent XWB, which flew on a flying test bed for the first time in February 2012, will power the Airbus A350. It is the fastest-selling Trent family member with more than 1,100 engines sold to 34 customers worldwide.

Singapore Airlines is a significant customer for Rolls-Royce. It currently operates 19 Airbus A380s powered by Trent 900 engines and 19 Airbus A330s powered by Trent 700 engines. The order for 20 A350-900 aircraft announced today follows Singapore Airlines' June 2007 order of 20 Airbus A350-900 aircraft, taking the total order to 40 A350 aircraft to be powered by Trent XWB engines.
