Rolls-Royce welcomes the decision by TAP Portugal to select 14 Airbus A330-900neo aircraft, powered by the Trent 7000 engine.

The aircraft will join TAP Portugal’s fleet as part of its fleet renewal announced by the airline’s new majority owner Atlantic Gateway.

The new aircraft order replaces the previous order for 12 A350-900 aircraft.

Dominic Horwood, Rolls-Royce, Chief Customer Officer – Civil Large Engines, said: “We welcome this decision by TAP Portugal to select the A330neo. We now look forward to powering the future of TAPwith our new Trent 7000 engine.”

The Trent 7000 brings together:

Experience from the Trent 700 – the engine of choice for the current A330
Architecture from the Trent 1000 TEN – the latest version of the Trent 1000 engine
Latest technology from the Trent XWB – the world’s most efficient large civil engine
The 68-72,000lb thrust Trent 7000 will deliver significant performance benefits compared to the current version of the Trent 700. It will improve specific fuel consumption by ten per cent; have twice the bypass ratio; and will halve noise.
