Singapore Airlines has selected the Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engine to power its nine additional Airbus A380-800s, which were ordered in 2006 for delivery between 2010 and 2011.

The order complements the first 10 Trent-900 powered A380s, of which deliveries have commenced. Singapore Airlines became the first airline in the world to fly the A380 in October 2007, and currently operates 2 of the aircraft, with the third due for delivery in March 2008.

Under the terms of the aircraft order with Airbus, Singapore Airlines had a choice from among two makes of engines available for the aircraft. The selection was made following the technical assessment of the engines and evaluation of offers from both engine manufacturers.

Singapore Airlines has since signed a Letter of Intent 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.
