Rolls-Royce selected for TotalCare contract by Finnair

Rolls-Royce will provide long term TotalCare® engine service support for Trent XWB engines that will power 19 Airbus A350 XWB aircraft to be operated by Finnair.

Finnair was the first airline to select the A350 XWB and will be the first European airline to receive the aircraft later this year.

Jari Huhtinen, Finnair, Vice President, Finnair Technical Operations, said: “The state-of-the-art Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines power Finnair’s new A350 XWB fleet, which in turn powers Finnair’s growth strategy. The world-class engine servicing offered by Rolls-Royce is one important element in maintaining the reliability record that Finnair is known for. The contract also helps us effectively manage the life cycle costs of the engines.”

Bruce Blythe, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President – Customers, Civil Large Engines said: “We welcome Finnair as a new TotalCare customer, and we look forward to providing services that will help ensure Finnair is fully supported through its A350 XWB entry into service and beyond.”

The Trent XWB is the world’s most efficient large civil aero engine, and the fastest-selling civil large engine ever, with more than 1,500 engines already sold. It entered into service for the first time earlier this year.
