South Korea’s T’way Air has signed an engine service agreement with Rolls-Royce for Trent 700 engines.
The agreement, which comes under R-R’s TotalCare services plan, will cover T’way’s newly-inducted fleet of three Airbus A330-300s.
It is the first time T’way has picked R-R for engine support, as the carrier had a fleet of CFM56-powered Boeing 737s before adding widebodies to its fleet.
T’way added its first A330 in February, take two more in the subsequent months. The aircraft were initially deployed on domestic flights, but are now flying medium-haul sectors, including to Singapore.
T’way vice president Kim Hyung-yi says: ““Our A330s are the first widebodies in our fleet, and provide a significant expansion in the levels of service we can provide our passengers. We value this TotalCare agreement, which will maximise aircraft availability and efficiency, allowing us to provide outstanding customer service.”
