The engine despatch marks another milestone in the ramp up of Trent XWB production at Derby, which will be producing a Trent XWB engine every working day next year.

The Trent XWB is the world’s most efficient engine flying today, and the fastest-selling wide-body engine with more than 1,500 engines sold to 41 customers.

It has already delivered the best-ever entry into service for a large engine since it entered commercial service in January 2015.

Chris Young, Rolls-Royce, Director, Programmes – Civil Aerospace, said: “It is great to reach this milestone and we continue to increase Trent XWB production to meet future demand. I’m pleased this particular engine is destined for Singapore Airlines at a time when the aerospace world is gathering at the Singapore Airshow.”

Singapore Airlines has a total of 67 A350-900 aircraft on order, all powered by the Trent XWB, with the first aircraft delivery to take place soon.
