Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines will power five new A330 aircraft that will be leased by Airbus to Kuwait Airways.
The engines will be the first Trents to enter service with the airline. In addition, the airline has ordered long-term TotalCare® support for the engines, its first long-term services agreement.
In December 2013 Kuwait Airways ordered ten Airbus A350 XWB aircraft, which will be powered by the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB, the world's most efficient large civil engine.
Dominic Horwood, Rolls-Royce, Chief Customer Officer, Civil Large Engines, said: "The Trent 700 continues to be the engine of choice for the A330 with performance and service support that make real improvements to our customers' economics. We look forward to supporting Kuwait Airways in service for many years to come. "
The Trent 700, the only engine specifically designed for the A330, is the market leader on the aircraft with nearly 70 per cent of new orders over the last three years. More than 1,500 Trent 700s are either in service or on order.
