Caring for DHL Express' A330 engines
Rolls-Royce and DHL Express have signed a "total care" agreement for the Trent 700 engines that currently power the eight A330 freighter aircraft of the global logistics company. The agreement will also cover any Trent 700 engines that are added to the DHL fleet in the future.
It will give DHL Express a secured cost for operating and maintaining the Trent 700 engines through a dollar-per-flying-hour payment mechanism.
The agreement will also deliver enhanced aircraft availability thanks to the Rolls-Royce engine knowledge that draws on its engine health monitoring and on the 62 million flying hours the Trent 700 has accumulated over more than 25 years of operations. (ah)
