Rolls Royce secures $420 million engines contract

Rolls-Royce has won a $420 million contract to provide aero engines that will help Hawaiian Airlines improve its fleet's environmental performance.

The company will provide Trent 700 engines for six Hawaiian Airlines Airbus A330 aircraft. Hawaiian Airlines already has ten Trent 700-powered A330s in service or on order.

Mark Dunkerley, airline President and CEO, said: "The Trent 700 delivers outstanding levels of performance and minimises our environmental impact. We are pleased to continue Hawaiian's long standing relationship with Rolls-Royce."

Chris Cyr, Rolls-Royce, Executive Vice President Customer Business – Americas, said: "Hawaiian Airlines is a valued customer and we are pleased that they have again put their trust in our leading-edge technology and support services."

There are more than 1,300 Trent 700s in service or on firm order. According to Rolls Royce, because the engine offers outstanding levels of performance and delivers the best payload capacity, it reduces an aircraft's impact on the environment.
