fLow-cost carrier Norwegian has chosen Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines to power nine leased 787-9 aircraft, retaining a single engine option for its fleet of 17 aircraft. The carrier has also taken out a long-term TotalCare MRO package for the engines worth $440m, the OEM confirmed. The sale of the engines meanwhile boosts Rolls-Royce’s orderbook by $134m. One of the nine aircraft is due to be delivered to Norwegian this year and the rest will enter into service throughout 2016-2018. The aircraft orders are the result of three separate leasing contracts, one with MG Aviation, one with ILFC and the third from an undisclosed lessor.
