Rolls-Royce has signed the first wide body agreement for its new TotalCare® Flex® service, with Cathay Pacific, to support Trent 800 engines for 17 Boeing 777 aircraft.
The agreement marks a new milestone for TotalCare Flex, designed for owners and operators of mature engines and is the first to be signed with an airline that is an aircraft owner and operator.
The new service builds on the enormous success of Rolls-Royce TotalCare®, where the needs of the aircraft owner and engine manufacturer are fully aligned with the shared goal of maximising engine time on wing.
TotalCare Flex tailors that service specifically for customers seeking economical management of mature engines.
Christopher Gibbs, Cathay Pacific, Engineering Director, said: "We are extremely pleased to be signing this TotalCare Flex agreement for our Trent 800 engines. Rolls-Royce has listened carefully to our needs for managing this mature fleet reliably and cost-effectively. We look forward to working closely with Rolls-Royce on the effective management of this fleet through the life of the agreement."
Dominic Horwood, Rolls-Royce, Chief Customer Officer, said: "Cathay Pacific is a respected and valued customer and we are excited to have them with us at the start of our TotalCare Flex journey. We look forward to working closely with them to ensure we deliver the benefits TotalCare Flex brings."
Tom Palmer, Rolls-Royce, Director – Services, Civil Large Engines, said: "We have led the way in services with TotalCare, now we are taking our innovation to a new level with a number of significant services developments, of which TotalCare Flex is just one."
