Rolls-Royce has won an order from Delta Air Lines for Trent 7000 engines to power ten Airbus aircraft. The order also includes Rolls-Royce’s flagship TotalCare® long term service support. 

The Trent 7000 is the latest member of the successful Rolls-Royce Trent engine family and the exclusive powerplant for the A330neo.

Today’s announcement brings the total number of Delta Air Lines Trent 7000-powered A330neos to 35, following an order for 25 aircraft in 2014.

Gil West, Delta Sr. EVP and Chief Operating Officer, said: “Expanding our A330 order book not only ensures that Delta’s near-to-medium-term widebody needs are taken care of, but also drives our strategic, measured international growth for the benefit of our employees, customers and investors. The next-generation engine technology from Rolls-Royce which powers the A330neo provides compelling operating economics, superior fuel performance and the range and coverage for our transoceanic needs going forward.” 

Chris Cholerton, Rolls-Royce, President – Civil Aerospace, said: “This is a great endorsement of the A330neo and Trent 7000 combination. We are seeing real momentum building in the marketplace and having Delta Air Lines select our engines twice gives us great confidence for the future.”

The Trent 7000 brings together more than 50 million flying hours of experience from the Trent 700, which powers the original version of the A330. 

The 68-72,000lb thrust Trent 7000 will deliver a step change in performance and economics compared to the Trent 700. Benefitting from a bypass ratio double that of its predecessor, the Trent 7000 will improve specific fuel consumption by 10%, and will significantly reduce noise. 

The order continues a longstanding relationship between Rolls-Royce and Delta Air Lines – it also operates Airbus A350, Boeing 777 and Boeing 717 aircraft that are powered by the Trent XWB, Trent 800 and BR715 engines respectively.
