Singapore Airlines Cargo and Rolls-Royce have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, which will accord the airline Preferred Carrier Status for the carriage of Rolls-Royces aircraft engines and component parts in and out of its planned Trent aero engine test and assembly facility at the Seletar Aerospace Park.

Construction of the Trent aero engine test and assembly facility, the Facility of the Future, will begin in early 2010. It is part of the Rolls-Royce Seletar Campus, which also includes a wide chord fan blade factory and a regional training centre.

In the aviation industry, the Rolls-Royce brand is world-renowned for its technologically-advanced aircraft engines which are assembled in the state-of-the-art plants. The timely delivery of parts and components for a seamless production schedule is therefore imperative. Rolls-Royce sets very high service standards for its partners, and we are very pleased to be accorded the opportunity to transport their engines and components. We look forward to growing our business relationship, and to supporting Rolls-Royces Facility of the Future, said Mr Tan Tiow Kor, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing for Singapore Airlines Cargo.
