Aero engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce has won a first-ever order from Fiji’s national carrier Air Pacific. The order, worth $210m (£134m), is for Trent 700 engines (pictured) to power three Airbus A330 aircraft.
Announcing the order at the Singapore Airshow, Dave Pflieger, Managing Director & CEO, Air Pacific, said: “The A330s will be our first new widebody aircraft, so the Trent 700 engines represent an exciting and significant investment in leading-edge operational technology and support service for the future of our business.”
The Trent 700, the only engine specifically designed for the A330, is the market leader for the aircraft, with more than 1,400 either in service or on order.
