Rolls-Royce Plc
: 15 December, 2006  (New Product)
Rolls-Royce has signed a new agreement with First Choice Airways to provide complete engine overhaul for Rolls-Royce RB211-535s on 12 of the airline's Boeing 757 aircraft. The deal is worth up to £45 million over the next five years.
All the work will be carried out at the Rolls-Royce Aero Repair and Overhaul (AR&O) facility in Derby, UK.

John Paterson, Managing Director, Aero Repair and Overhaul at Rolls-Royce, said: 'Customers are reassured by our investment in new facilities that demonstrates our commitment to improving performance so that we can better meet their needs. Our focus on enhancing the service we could offer was a major factor in maintaining our successful 15-year relationship.'

Martin Whittaker, Head of Commercial and Leasing at First Choice Airways, commented: 'Our decision to retain Rolls-Royce as our preferred engine maintenance supplier for our RB211s is based on the co-operative relationship we have enjoyed over the last 15 years. Engine overhaul is a significant cost driver to our business therefore it is important to ensure we have a competitive commercial agreement whilst ensuring we use a quality provider. We firmly believe that Rolls-Royce Derby will provide that quality service over time with such a significant investment with their new facility'
