Rolls-Royce Welcomes IAG Order for 8 A350 XWB Aircraft

Rolls-Royce has welcomed a decision by International Airlines Group (IAG) to convert eight Airbus A350-900 options into firm orders, powered by Trent XWB engines. The engines will have long-term TotalCare® service support.

The A350-900 aircraft will go into service with IAG's Spanish airline Iberia, which will become a new operator of the Trent XWB.


In April 2013, IAG ordered 18 A350-1000 aircraft with TotalCare support to be operated by British Airways. The A350-1000 is powered exclusively by the higher-thrust Trent XWB-97 engine.

Eric Schulz, Rolls-Royce, President - Civil Large Engines, said: "IAG is a valued customer, with two airlines operating Trent engines. The performance of the Trent XWB, with TotalCare support, will maximise aircraft availability."

The Trent XWB is the world's most efficient large civil aero engine and the fastest-selling Trent engine ever, with more than 1,400 already sold. It will power the first A350 XWB aircraft into service later this year.
