Rolls-Royce has won a $455m order from Hawaiian Airlines for Trent 7000 engines to power six Airbus A330-800neo aircraft starting in 2019. The order also includes long-term TotalCare® services.
The new aircraft will replace the airline’s previous order for six A350-800 aircraft. Hawaiian Airlines has also acquired rights to purchase an additional six A330-800neo aircraft.
In July this year Rolls-Royce welcomed the airline’s decision to select the six A330-800neos. The A330neo and Trent 7000 engine were both launched at the Farnborough Air Show earlier that month.
Mark Dunkerley, Hawaiian Airlines, President and CEO, said: "We are pleased to complete our engine agreement and look forward to operating the Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 with TotalCare® support. We already have a strong partnership through operating the Trent 700 on our A330-200s and the BR715 on our Boeing 717s."
Eric Schulz, Rolls-Royce, President - Civil Large Engines said: "Hawaiian Airlines is a valued customer that already has experience of operating Trent 700 engines. Now we look forward to delivering a step change in performance and economics with the Trent 7000."
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 noise.
The airline has previously ordered Trent 700 engines for Airbus A330 aircraft and BR715 engines for Boeing 717 aircraft.
