The Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-84 engine, which powers the Airbus A350-900, has now accumulated more than ten million engine flying hours, achieving another impressive milestone for the engine programme.
Following its entry into service in 2015, the Trent XWB-84 has reached this landmark by supporting more than 30 airlines operating on a variety of different routes from short-range segments to ultra-long-range flights of more than 18 hours – demonstrating its versatility and capability.
Chris Cholerton, President Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace, said: “Reaching ten million flying hours is another great achievement for the Trent XWB. It is the latest in the Trent family to reach this milestone and has done so faster than any other Trent engine, in just over seven years of operation. We are incredibly proud of the Trent XWB as it continues to set new benchmarks on sustainability, reliability, and versatility.”
