Rolls-Royce Plc
: 14 December, 2006  (Application Story)
Additional Lufthansa A340s to be powered by the Rolls-Royce Trent 500
Rolls-Royce confirmed that the Trent 500 will power Lufthansa's follow-on order for seven Airbus A340-600s ordered by Lufthansa last week. This latest deal expands the airline's fleet of the long-range aircraft, for which the Trent 500 is the sole engine, to 24 in service or on order.

Commenting on the deal, Charles Cuddington, Chief Commercial Officer at Rolls-Royce, said: 'This selection by Lufthansa validates the capabilities of the Trent 500 for its growing network of ultra long-range routes. The Trent 500 has an excellent in-service reliability record that Lufthansa recognises as vital when operating sectors of this length.

'Lufthansa has now placed follow-on orders for two Trent variants within the space of two months, selections that we're obviously delighted with.'

This contract follows closely behind a follow-on order Lufthansa has placed for the Trent 700 for an additional five Airbus A330s.

With this new order, Lufthansa is expanding its links with the Rolls-Royce Trent family of engines. The airline now has 54 Trent-powered aircraft either in service or on order. This fleet comprises of the Trent 700 on 15 A330s, 15 A380s to be delivered with Trent 900 power, plus the 24 A340s. In addition, Lufthansa operates 26 Airbus A321s powered by the V2500 from International Aero Engines (IAE), in which Rolls-Royce is a major shareholder.
