Rolls-Royce has been selected by Lufthansa Group to power 40 new aircraft. Its Trent 1000 engine will power 20 Boeing 787 Dreamliners and its Trent XWB will power 20 Airbus A350 XWBs. Rolls-Royce will also provide its TotalCare long term services for both engine types.

Dr Detlef Kayser, Member of the Executive Board Lufthansa Group – Airlines Resources & Operational Standards, said: “We are very pleased to select Rolls-Royce to power these aircraft, helping us to provide outstanding customer service. With this order, we will reduce our operating costs, simplify our long-haul fleet and improve our environmental performance.”

Today’s announcement also strengthens our long-standing and highly-valued partnership with Lufthansa, which has selected the Trent 1000 for the first time and continued to demonstrate its commitment to the Trent XWB.”
