Rolls-Royce Welcomes ITA's Selection of 10 Airbus A330neo Aircraft, Powered by Trent 7000 Engines

Italian airline Italia Trasporto Aereo (ITA) has selected 10 Airbus A330neo aircraft, powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines. ITA Airways is the latest customer to take the Trent 7000.

The Trent 7000, which first entered service in November 2018, is the latest engine in the Trent family, which has clocked up more than 150 million engine flying hours across 26 years of operating. The Trent 7000 builds on the unsurpassed performance of the Trent 700 combined with the engine technology of the Trent XWB.

Supporting ITA Airways’s mission to become an efficient, innovative, and competitive carrier, the Trent 7000 is quieter and contributes to a 25 per cent lower fuel burn per seat at aircraft level compared to previous generation competitors. It is also ready to operate on Sustainable Aviation Fuels as they become more available to airlines in the future. As well as offering improved efficiency, the Trent 7000 also provides 99.9% dispatch reliability.
