Rolls-Royce has won an order to provide SelectCare services for RB211 engines that power 28 Icelandair aircraft.
The order continues to develop the close and highly successful relationship between Icelandair and Rolls-Royce, which reaches its 60th anniversary next year.
SelectCare is an innovative service, launched earlier this year, which allows customers to tailor the services they require across an agreed number of engine shop visits to match their service needs and budget.
It fits between Rolls-Royce’s fully comprehensive TotalCare® service, which maximises engine time on wing in addition to giving long-term cost certainty on a dollar-per-flying-hour basis, and Foundation Services, where customers contract for shop visit support on an individual time and materials basis.
Jens Thordarson, Vice President Technical Operations, Icelandair, said: “This order is another step forward in our excellent relationship. SelectCare is ideal for our individual needs, combining our own deep knowledge of RB211 engines gained over many years, with the support expertise of Rolls-Royce. It demonstrates that Rolls-Royce has the flexibility to create service solutions that customers want.”
Bruce Blythe, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President , Customers – Civil Aerospace, said: “It is great to have a longstanding customer, with such a tremendous operating record on the RB211, sign up to our new service. We are committed to finding the right service to match our customers’ needs.”
SelectCare is supported by Rolls-Royce’s unrivalled understanding of its engines, its comprehensive service network and its highly advanced engine health monitoring, which differentiate SelectCare from other fixed-price overhaul agreements.
Rolls-Royce first powered Icelandair in 1957 with Dart engines on Vickers Viscount aircraft. The airline has operated RB211 engines on its fleet of Boeing 757 aircraft since 1990.
