Rolls-Royce and Air Belgium have signed a ‘TotalCare’ service agreement for the Trent 7000 engines that power the airline’s two new A330neo aircraft.
The TotalCare engine service is designed for predictive maintenance planning and off-wing repair and overhaul. It transfers time-on-wing and maintenance cost risk back to Rolls-Royce and offers advanced engine health monitoring and future product enhancements, the manufacturer said.
“Our new aircraft are an important investment in our future, delivering new levels of efficiency and sustainability,” said Air Belgium’s chief executive officer Niky Terzakis. “Our TotalCare agreement will ensure we maximise availability, which maximises those benefits for our customers.”
Rolls-Royce’s senior vice president – customers John Kelly said: “It is great to have Air Belgium become the latest member of our family of Trent operators to take TotalCare. We look forward to supporting them with a smooth entry into service and for years to come.”
