Rolls-Royce Engines To Power 40 New Lufthansa Aircraft

Will Hang From Both Airbus And Boeing Aircraft Acquired By The Carrier

Rolls-Royce has been selected by Lufthansa Group to power 40 new aircraft. Its Trent 1000 engine will power 20 Boeing 787 Dreamliners and its Trent XWB will power 20 Airbus A350 XWBs. Rolls-Royce will also provide its flagship TotalCare long term services for both engine types.

The Trent XWB is the world’s most efficient large aero engine flying today and the world’s fastest-selling widebody engine with more than 1,800 in service or on order. The airline will also operate the latest version of the Trent 1000, the Trent 1000 TEN (Thrust, Efficiency and New Technology), offering high fuel efficiency and low noise.

"We are very pleased to select Rolls-Royce to power these aircraft, helping us to provide outstanding customer service. With this order, we will reduce our operating costs, simplify our long-haul fleet and improve our environmental performance,” said Dr. Detlef Kayser, Member of the Executive Board Lufthansa Group – Airlines Resources & Operational Standards.

"Lufthansa is a recognised industry leader and this marks a significant endorsement of two members of our Trent engine family," said Chris Cholerton, Rolls-Royce, President – Civil Aerospace. "Today’s announcement also strengthens our long-standing and highly-valued partnership with Lufthansa, which has selected the Trent 1000 for the first time and continued to demonstrate its commitment to the Trent XWB.”

The Trent 1000 has powered the first flight and entry into service of every version of the Dreamliner – the 787-8, 787-9 and 787-10 and incorporates technology that contributes to the Dreamliner achieving 20 per cent greater efficiency than the aircraft it replaces, as well as having half the noise footprint of previous-generation aircraft.

The announcement adds to the 20 Trent XWB powered A350 aircraft that Lufthansa already has on order. More than 80 Rolls-Royce powered widebody aircraft are in service with Lufthansa Group airlines.

The Trent family of seven different engines has now accumulated more than 125 million flying hours since the first Trent entered service in 1995.
