Rolls-Royce has received a maintenance and services contract from MNG Airlines, covering the Trent 700 engines that power the airline’s two latest Airbus A330-300 P2F freighter aircraft.
The ‘TotalCare’ agreement gives Istanbul-based MNG a secured cost of operating and maintaining its Trent 700 engines through a dollar-per-flying-hour payment mechanism, Rolls-Royce said. TotalCare is also designed to support fleet efficiency and deliver enhanced aircraft availability, the company added.
A TotalCare agreement is already in place for the Trent 700 engines on MNG’s existing A330-200F.
“We look forward to continuing to support MNG Airlines with our TotalCare services as it adds to its A330 fleet,” said Rolls-Royce’s senior vice president customers John Kelly. “The Trent 700 has proven itself as the market choice for the A330 and our services will help MNG Airlines maximise all of its benefits.”
MNG Airlines’ managing director Ali Sedat Ozkazanc commented: “With a growing fleet, we are continuing to keep our customers delighted and confirm our leading position in our country and industry. We need to maintain our A330 freighter fleet at the highest operational reliability level and keep our maintenance cost at minimum. Our TotalCare agreement allows us to do just that, drawing on many years of Rolls-Royce expertise with this engine.”
