Rolls-Royce and DHL Express have signed a TotalCare® agreement for the Trent 700 engines that currently power the eight Airbus A330 freighter aircraft of the worldwide operating logistics company. The agreement will also cover any Trent 700 engines that are added to the DHL fleet in the future.
This agreement will give DHL a secured cost of operating and maintaining its Trent 700 engines through a dollar-per-flying-hour payment mechanism. It will also deliver enhanced aircraft availability thanks to Rolls-Royce’s in-depth engine knowledge that draws on advanced engine health monitoring and on the 62 million flying hours the Trent 700 has accumulated over more than 25 years of operations.
The TotalCare agreement will ensure the continuity of aftermarket support at the lowest possible maintenance cost for the DHL fleet for decades into the future.
