Posted 15 November 2019 · Add Comment

The Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engine has received certification to power the new Airbus BelugaXL air transporter.

 

The certificate, awarded by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), marks another milestone for an engine that has been a leading member of the Trent family for almost 25 years.

The Trent 700 has established itself as the clear engine of choice for the Airbus A330, the basis of the BelugaXL design, which has enjoyed a 90 per cent market share over the last four years.

Adair Swan, Rolls-Royce, Trent 700 programme director, Civil Aerospace, said: “Certification marks another milestone in an incredible Trent 700 journey that is an integral part of the Trent success story. We are very proud that the Trent 700 will power what will be a deeply-loved aircraft, supporting the delivery of parts to Airbus’ assembly lines across Europe.”
