Rolls-Royce and Cathay Pacific agree lifetime Totalcare services deal

Rolls-Royce and Cathay Pacific have agreed a TotalCare® support contract for Trent 700 engines that power Cathay Pacific group's 60 Airbus A330 aircraft in-service and on-order with Cathay Pacific group airlines. The contract will run for as long as Cathay Pacific and its sister company Dragonair operate the Trent-powered A330s.

Cathay Pacific became the first airline to operate any Trent engine when its Airbus 330s entered service in 1995 and today it is the largest Rolls-Royce Trent 700 customer.

Phil Harris, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President - Customers, said: "We are delighted that Cathay Pacific has extended its TotalCare requirements for its entire A330 fleet, continuing a relationship that is part of the fabric of the Trent engine story."

Christopher Gibbs, Cathay Pacific, Engineering Director, said: "This contract will enable Cathay Pacific to realise the benefits of TotalCare on the Trent 700 as part of our continued drive to maximise aircraft availability and efficiency."
