Rolls-Royce and Oman Air sign five-year contract for engine maintenance

Posted 27 November 2019 · Add Comment

Rolls-Royce and Oman Air have agreed to a five-year contract for engine maintenance, repair and overhaul services for eight Trent 700-powered Airbus A330 aircraft.

 

The agreement will see Rolls-Royce provide Oman’s national carrier with its flagship TotalCare long-term aftercare service solution, which is designed to provide predictive maintenance planning and maximise aircraft availability.

Abdulaziz Al Raisi, CEO Oman Air, said: “As a world-class organisation, we place great importance on partnering with companies pioneering cutting-edge technologies. We have a long-standing relationship with Rolls-Royce, and I am delighted to extend it by selecting TotalCare for the engine servicing of our Trent 700-powered A330s.

TotalCare is a long-term services agreement under which Rolls-Royce takes responsibility for engine maintenance. Fleets covered by TotalCare achieve better time-on-wing, and benefit from the global Rolls-Royce CareNetwork, which is a large, capable and competitive engine service network that caters for the needs of engines at every phase of their lifecycle.

“The selection of TotalCare by Oman Air for eight Trent 700-powered A330s is testament to the strength of the relationship we have with Oman’s national carrier,” said Omar Ali Adib, Rolls-Royce, Vice President, Customers – Middle East. “We look forward to continuing to work closely with the airline to deliver increased engine availability for the A330, enhanced by this dedicated long-term care agreement.”

The Trent 700 was the first in the successful Trent family of engines and truly embodies the Power of Trent. It delivers the power required for all variants of the A330, in the Middle East more than 70 per cent of A330 operations are powered by the Trent 700.

TotalCare is fully-integrated engine service cover, designed for predictive maintenance planning, as well as off-wing repair and overhaul activities for airline operators of Rolls-Royce aero engines. TotalCare transfers both time-on-wing and maintenance cost risks back to Rolls-Royce, as well as offering advanced engine health monitoring and inclusion of product durability and reliability improvements; all of which can result in increased asset value and desirability in the marketplace.
