ROLLS-Royce has been selected to supply Norwegian with Trent 1000 engines for nine additional Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner planes and has been signed up for a maintenance and servicing contract worth $440m (£272m).
The deal will see Norwegian’s leased planes powered by the Trent 1000-TEN, which Rolls-Royce claims boasts the “best through-life fuel efficiency, lowest emissions and lowest noise”.
This brings the total number of Norwegian’s Trent 1000-powered Boeing 787 Dreamliners to 17. All of the engine sales are already accounted for in the Rolls-Royce order book.
Tore Jenssen, chief operating officer at Norwegian, said the deal continued the airline’s “excellent relationship with Rolls-Royce”.
Dominic Horwood, chief customer officer, Rolls-Royce, Civil Large Engines, said: “We are very pleased that Norwegian has once again chosen us to support its fleet expansion.”
Norwegian now uses Rolls-Royce engines for 17 of its aircraft.
