Thomson Airways has struck an engine MRO agreement with Rolls-Royce for the remaining service life of its Boeing 757 fleet.

Rolls-Royce is to support the aircraft’s RB211-535 engines at fixed overhaul prices until their retirement from the leisure carrier’s fleet.

The deal was specifically designed around the airline’s operational, technical, and financial needs, says Jason Mahoney, engineering and maintenance director at the carrier’s parent TUI Group.

Thomsons fleet includes 15 757-200s built between 1994 and 2004, Flightglobal’s Ascend Fleets database shows.
