Rolls-Royce wins order from CIT to power 23 aircraft

Rolls-Royce has won an order from US leasing company CIT Aerospace for Trent XWB engines to power ten Airbus A350 XWB aircraft and Trent 700 engines to power 13 Airbus A330 aircraft.

The Trent XWB engines will power ten CIT A350 aircraft that were announced in January 2013 which were in addition to five A350 XWB aircraft already on order.


Jeff Knittel, Chief Executive Officer, CIT Transportation Finance, said: "As one of the largest aircraft lessors in the world, we strive to provide our customers with the most fuel efficient, technologically advanced products. The Trent family of engines has proven to be reliable in offering high fuel and operating efficiency, and it remains in high demand among our global customer base."

Eric Schulz, President - Civil Large Engines, Rolls-Royce, said: "CIT is a valued customer and we are delighted that it has again put its trust in our industry-leading technology. This order underscores the market-leading position of the Trent 700, and reflects our ability to deliver a Trent XWB engine that has already proven itself in test flights to be the most efficient large aero engine flying today."
