Rolls-Royce has concluded a contract worth up to $2.2 billion at engine list prices, with TAM Airlines of Brazil, to provide Trent XWB engines for Airbus A350-XWB aircraft.

The order includes a 12 year agreement for TotalCare long-term services support.

This is the first time TAM has ordered engines from Rolls-Royce. TAM has ordered 27 Airbus A350-XWBs.

Libano Barroso, President of TAM Airlines said, Our selection of this engine and aircraft combination is an integral step in our strategy to increase both our domestic and international route structure, responding to the rapidly developing capacity demands from and to Brazil. The operational capability and fuel efficiency of the latest generation in the Trent family will make this aircraft a significant addition to our fleet.

The Trent XWB, specifically designed for the Airbus A350-XWB, is the fastest selling Rolls-Royce Trent engine offering 28% better fuel efficiency than pre-Trent generation engines.

The Paris Air Show is being held this week at Le Bourget near the French capital, Paris.
