Singapore Airlines has selected the Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engine to power 19 Airbus A330-300s, scheduled for delivery between 2009 and 2011. The aircraft will be delivered new, on operating leases from Airbus.

Under the terms of the leases, Singapore Airlines had a choice from among the three makes of engines available for the aircraft. The selection was made following the technical assessments of the engines and evaluation of offers from all the three manufacturers.

Singapore Airlines signed a Letter of Intent on Friday with Rolls-Royce to provide engines, spares and maintenance under a TotalCare Services Agreement.

Rolls-Royce will be responsible for the provision of off-wing maintenance, repair and overhaul of engines, as well as spare engine support. The engines will be repaired and overhauled at Singapore Aero Engine Services Limited (SAESL) - a Joint Venture company, owned by SIA Engineering Company Limited and Rolls-Royce.
