Rolls-Royce has won an order from Turkish Airlines for Trent XWB engines to power 25 Airbus A350-900 aircraft, all of which will be covered by its flagship TotalCare service support. The airline also has options for a further five aircraft.

The Trent XWB is both the most efficient large civil aero engine flying today and the fastest selling wide body jet engine ever, with over 1,700 ordered by 45 customers worldwide.

M. İlker Aycı, Turkish Airlines Board Chairman and the Executive Committee, said: “This is a significant development in our plans for future growth and we look forward to adding these latest Rolls-Royce powered aircraft to our ever-expanding fleet. We have previous experience of operating Rolls-Royce engines and know the benefits of both the technology and their TotalCare service support.”

Chris Cholerton, Rolls-Royce, President – Civil Aerospace, said: “Turkish Airlines has enjoyed impressive growth over recent years and we are really proud to be playing our part in the next chapter of their story. The Trent XWB delivers excellent performance and this order underlines the confidence our customers have that our products are the right choice in terms of economics and services.”
