Rolls-Royce Signs $1 Billion Trent 900 Contract With Skymark Airlines

Also Inks Trent 700 Letter Of Intent With The Japanese Carrier

Rolls-Royce has signed a $1 billion contract, at list prices, from Japan's Skymark Airlines for Trent 900 engines to power six Airbus A380 aircraft. The Trent 900 order, which follows the announcement of a letter of intent for these engines in September 2011, includes long-term TotalCare service support. The aircraft will enter into service in 2014.

The airline has also signed a letter of intent for Trent 700 engines to power up to 10 leased Airbus A330s, including TotalCare. The aircraft will be the first A330s in Skymark's fleet and will enter into service in 2014.
 
Skymark, a new customer for Rolls-Royce, is the only carrier in Japan to select both the Trent 900 and Trent 700.
 
Bruce Blythe, Rolls-Royce Senior Vice President - Civil Aerospace, said: "We are delighted Skymark Airlines is putting its trust in our technology and support services. This latest order and letter of intent reinforces the market leading positions of these Trent engines."
 
The Trent 900 has been selected by 11 of the 16 airlines that have made an engine selection for the A380. In Asia it has been selected by six out of seven operators. The Trent 700 is the only engine specifically designed for the A330 and remains the market leader for the aircraft, with more than 1,400 of the engines either in service or on order.
