Rolls-Royce and Vietnamese airline VietJet have signed a TotalCare® service agreement for Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines that will power 10 Airbus A330ceo aircraft.
The agreement is the execution of the memorandum of understanding that was signed in Edinburgh last year and will provide the airline with predictability and reliability for the services and maintenance.
As Rolls-Royce’s flagship service offering, TotalCare covers off-wing repair and overhaul and is designed to provide operational certainty for customers by transferring time on wing and maintenance cost risk back to Rolls-Royce. It will also deliver enhanced aircraft availability thanks to Rolls-Royce’s in-depth engine knowledge that draws on our advanced engine health monitoring.

Ewen McDonald, Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace, Chief Customer Officer, said: “We are delighted to execute this service agreement with VietJet as the airline begins operating widebody aircraft and expand its network into long-haul operations. We look forward to supporting their Trent 700 fleet for many years.”
VietJet Managing Director Dinh Viet Phuong said: “The Trent 700 engines supported by TotalCare will bring a technological breakthrough to VietJet’s fleet, helping increase range and improve quality with the aircraft’s technical reliability and operational efficiency. We hope this partnership with Rolls-Royce will also boost international trade through connecting people around the world both conveniently and economically in the future.”
The Trent 700, which has accumulated more than 65 million flying hours of experience, offers airlines world-class reliability, with a 99.9% dispatch rate and the longest time on wing of any A330 engine option. The Trent 700 also delivers the highest thrust available on the A330, producing the greatest take-off performance, range, and payload capability, all of which equate to superior revenue-generating potential for operators.
