Air Europa will use engines provided by Rolls-Royce. Trent 1000 will power Air Europas 787-9 aircraft:
Spanish carrier Air Europa has selected Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines and TotalCare® long term service support, worth $1.1bn, for 14 new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
Air Europa already has eight Trent 1000-powered 787-8s on order that will enter service in 2016.
Juan Jose Hidalgo, President of Globalia, the parent company of Air Europa, said: „We have plans to further expand our long-haul service and the Trent 1000 will deliver excellent economics through its performance and support service.”
Mark Harrison, Rolls-Royce, Vice President – Customer Business, Civil Large Engines, said: „We are delighted that Air Europa has once again selected the Trent 1000 and continues to recognise the benefits that this engine brings, delivering excellent lifetime fuel burn and reliability on the aircraft as well as outstanding emissions and noise performance.”
Rolls-Royce powered the very first Boeing 787 test flight in December 2009, the first 787-8 to enter service in October 2011, and the first 787-9 to enter service last year.
