Rolls-Royce gets Dubai orders

Rolls-Royce has announced a series of contract wins from the Dubai airshow, including a $280m (£176.2m) order for four Trent 700 engines to go into Garuda Indonesia Airlines’ Airbus A330 fleet. The engineering giant also said the airline had confirmed a previous order for the Trent 700 engines to power six other A300s. On top of the Garuda order, Rolls-Royce has won a contract from Oman Air for engines to power six Boeing 787 Dreamliners, and an order worth up to $500m from Saudi Arabian Airlines to provide engines and its proprietary TotalCare support services for four Airbus A330s. Nick Devall, Rolls-Royce commercial chief for civil aerospace, said: "Garuda Indonesia Airlines is a valued customer and we are pleased that they have again put their trust in our leading edge technology and support services.”
