Norwegian has selected Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines for nine additional leased Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
This brings the total number of Norwegian's Trent 1000-powered Boeing 787 Dreamliners to 17. All of the engine sales are already accounted for in the Rolls-Royce orderbook.
In addition, the airline has also ordered long-term TotalCare® service support for engines powering the nine aircraft, worth $440m.
The leased aircraft will be powered by the latest version of the Trent 1000, the Trent 1000-TEN, which will deliver the best lifetime fuel burn performance on the aircraft.
Tore Jenssen, Norwegian, Chief Operating Officer, said: "This decision continues our excellent relationship with Rolls-Royce. We have been very pleased with the Trent 1000 in-service performance and we look forward in particular to operating the Trent 1000-TEN engine which will set new standards on the aircraft."
Dominic Horwood, Chief Customer Officer, Rolls-Royce, Civil Large Engines, said: "The Trent 1000 is delivering excellent fuel burn economics and the best reliability performance on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. We are very pleased that Norwegian has once again chosen us to support its fleet expansion."
The Trent 1000 delivers exceptional environmental performance on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner with the best through-life fuel efficiency, lowest emissions and lowest noise.
