Rolls Royce has signed a TotalCare agreement with Uganda Airlines for their two Airbus A330neo planes that are powered by the former’s Trent 7000 engines. Uganda Airlines first received its first A330neo in December 2020 and the second in January 2021.
The agreement will now give Uganda Airlines a secured cost of operating and maintaining their Trent 7000 engines, through a dollar-per-flying-hour payment mechanism, alongside enhanced aircraft availability due to advanced engine health monitoring and inclusion of product durability and reliability improvements.
The Trent 7000, which first entered service in November 2018, is the seventh and latest member in the Trent family of engines and has accumulated more than 150 million engine flying hours. The 68-72,000lb thrust Trent 7000 helps the A330neo reduce environmental impact with a 25% improvement in fuel burn per seat as compared to previous generation competitor aircraft and a significant noise reduction.
Our TotalCare agreement will ensure Uganda Airlines, which is the latest member of Trent operators’ family, receives our flagship standard of service, thus maximising aircraft availability and the ability to plan forward financially.John Kelly, Senior Vice President Customers, Rolls-Royce
