Rolls-Royce has won an order worth US$1.2bn for Trent 7000 engines and TotalCare service support from Garuda Indonesia. The engines will power 14 Airbus A330neo aircraft. The order was signed during a visit by the President of Indonesia, His Excellency Joko Widodo, to the United Kingdom. The order replaces an existing order for seven A330-300 aircraft powered by Trent 700 engines. In recognition of the longer term growth potential of Garuda and Indonesian civil aviation, both parties also agreed to explore maintenance co-operation and skills development opportunities. The Trent 7000, the exclusive power plant for the A330neo, is the seventh member of the Trent family which has become the engine of choice in the wide body market. The Trent 7000 is scheduled to enter service in 2017.
