Rolls-Royce has won a $200m order from Turkish Airlines for Trent 700 engines to power three Airbus A330 freighter aircraft. The contract includes a TotalCare long-term service agreement.

The aircraft, which will be delivered between 2012-2014, are in addition to two Rolls-Royce powered A330 freighters previously ordered, one of which is now in service.

Turkish Airlines now has a total of 16 Rolls-Royce powered A330 passenger and freighter aircraft in service or on order to support its growth strategy.

Nick Devall, Rolls-Royce Chief Commercial Officer Civil Aerospace, said, The Trent 700 is the only engine specifically designed for the A330 and delivers significant payload benefits in operation. Following our flawless entry into service last year, I look forward to our relationship continuing to develop.

The TotalCare long-term service agreements, in place on 90% of Trent engines, are designed to minimise customer financial risk and enhance operational performance and reliability, allowing operators to concentrate on their core business.
