Cebu Pacific has ordered Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines, with TotalCare® long-term engine services, to power two new Airbus A330 aircraft. The Philippines-based airline already operates six of the aircraft, all powered by the Trent 700.

The Trent 700 delivers the best fuel burn, emissions and noise performance, resulting in market leadership on the aircraft. The engine has won more than 70 per cent of new orders over the last four years and accounts for a similar percentage on future A330 deliveries. More than 1,600 Trent 700s are now in service or on firm order.

Lance Gokongwei, President and Chief Executive Officer, Cebu Pacific, said: “We have great experience of the Trent 700 in service and we look forward to its continuous delivery of outstanding economics and performance for our operations.”

Ewen McDonald, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President, Customers – Civil Aerospace, said: “We are honoured that Cebu Pacific has once again selected us to power this important element of the Cebu Pacific fleet.”
