Rolls-Royce welcomes the decision by Transaero Airlines to select 12 Airbus A330neo aircraft, powered by the newly-launched Trent 7000 engine.
Eric Schulz, Rolls-Royce, President - Civil Large Engines said: “We welcome Transaero Airlines' decision to select the A330neo, powered by our Trent 7000 engines. We look forward to delivering a step change in performance and economics.”
The Trent 7000 brings together:
The 68-72,000lb thrust Trent 7000 will deliver significant performance benefits compared to the current version of the Trent 700. It will improve specific fuel consumption by ten per cent; have twice the bypass ratio; and will halve perceived noise.
The Trent engine family has accumulated more than 75 million flight hours over the last 19 years. Each member of the Trent engine family has been either the market leader, aircraft launch engine, or both.
