Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 Ten powers EgyptAirís first flight with sustainable fuel

Posted 24 July 2019 · Add Comment

EgyptAir has completed its first flight with Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), undertaken for the entry into service of the fifth, in a series of six, Rolls-Royce powered Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners.

 

The flight from Seattle to Cairo is the longest flight using SAF conducted in a Boeing 787.

Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 TEN (TEN stands for Thrust Efficiency and New technology) engines were chosen by the airline to power the latest members of its growing fleet and will receive long-term maintenance support with EgyptAir’s selection of the Rolls- Royce TotalCare service plan. The Trent 1000 has powered every variant of the Dreamliner since its entry into service and incorporates technology to enhance aircraft performance. This has helped the aircraft achieve 20 per cent greater fuel efficiency than previous-generation aircraft.

“We are thrilled to welcome our new aircraft into service and to complete our first Sustainable Aviation Fuel flight from Seattle to Cairo, said Ahmed Adel, Chairman and CEO of EgyptAir. “The operational efficiencies of the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, with Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 TEN engines, help us achieve our objective of offering even greater value to our passengers, our selection of TotalCare for long-term engine monitoring and maintenance support will further assist us toward this aim.”

“We are proud to be part of EgyptAir’s first flight using Sustainable Aviation Fuel, and to assist with smooth entry into service of all six of the airline’s new Boeing 787 Dreamliners,” said John Kelly, Senior Vice President, Customers – Middle East and Africa, Rolls-Royce. “EgyptAir is Egypt’s flagship airline and its selection of our Trent 1000 TEN engine is a huge endorsement for the Trent engine family and perfectly demonstrates The Power of Trent. We also look forward to enhancing the availability of these aircraft with our TotalCare service plan.”
