Rolls-Royce has signed a TotalCare® service agreement with Ethiopian Airlines for Trent XWB-97 engines that are set to power four new Airbus A350-1000 aircraft.

The agreement will provide Ethiopian Airlines with predictability as well as a known cost for the services and maintenance.

Rolls-Royce state that TotalCare is designed to provide operational certainty for customers by transferring time on wing and maintenance cost risk back to Rolls-Royce.

The service offering is supported by data delivered through the Rolls-Royce advanced engine health monitoring system, which helps provide customers with increased operational availability, reliability and efficiency.

The Trent XWB is the most efficient large aero engine in service today and the Trent XWB-84 already powers 20 Ethiopian Airlines A350-900 aircraft in service.

Ewen McDonald, chief customer officer at Rolls-Royce, said: “Ethiopian Airlines has led the way in Africa as the first operator of the A350-900 and will be the first to introduce the A350-1000 in service. We look forward to providing a TotalCare service that maximises performance for both the Trent XWB-84 and Trent XWB-97.”

Mesfin Tasew, chief executive at Ethiopian Airlines, said “We value the strong relationship we have built over the years with Rolls-Royce, and as we celebrate 50 years of flights to the UK, we continue to look forward to the implementation of this TotalCare agreement for the latest addition to our fleet with the introduction of the modern A350-1000 aircraft.”

In addition to powering the A350-900 and A350-1000 aircraft, the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 also powers 10 Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, all supported by TotalCare.
