Aircraft lessor MG Aviation has picked Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines to power two new Boeing 787-9s ordered earlier today at the Farnborough air show.

The Nakash family-backed firm is already taking the Trent 1000s for two 787s it ordered previously.

“The Trent 1000 has proven its performance in service, and we are pleased to place this further order for an engine that continues to deliver for operators with the most demanding of schedules,” says MG Aviation chairman Joe Nakash.

Earlier this month, the Trent 1000 powered the first delivery flight of the Boeing 787-9. The UK manufacturer values the deal at $86 million.
