CBI member Rolls-Royce won a US$1.5 billion order from China Eastern Airlines for Trent 700 engines to power 15 Airbus A330 aircraft.
The order also includes long-term TotalCare engine support services. The aircraft are in addition to the 51 Trent 700 powered A330s that China Eastern Airlines already operates. The Trent 700 delivers the best fuel burn, emissions, and noise performance, resulting in market leadership on the aircraft.
The engine has won 70% of new orders over the last five years and accounts for a similar percentage on future A330 deliveries. Rolls-Royce currently has more than 1,600 installed engines on the A330s worldwide, with a market share of close to 90% in Greater China.
China Eastern Airlines also has 20 Airbus A350 XWB aircraft on order. The aircraft are powered by Rolls-Royce Trent XWB, the world’s most efficient civil large engine in service.
