Announced at the MRO Middle East event in Dubai today, the agreement specifically for Trent 700 engines is the first of its kind between the wholly owned Mubadala company, and a European carrier.

Rolls-Royce recently announced the delivery of its 2000th Trent 700 engine since its introduction in 1995. There are currently 1,710 aircraft globally that are operating Trent 700 engines which is set to grow to 1,738 by 2020.
TS&S - currently the world’s only independent Trent 700 MRO facility - works in partnership with major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) including Rolls-Royce, GE Aviation and International Aero Engines and provides a variety of engine maintenance services across multiple engine platforms, including Airbus, Boeing and light aircraft.
“We greatly value this milestone agreement with TAP Air Portugal signifying an expansion of our customer base in the European market with one of the continent’s fastest growing airlines. This agreement is testament to the quality delivered by our workforce and we’re thrilled that renowned European airlines, such as TAP Air Portugal, are confident in Abu Dhabi service providers for their MRO requirements,” said Mansoor Janahi, Acting CEO at TS&S.
