Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR., ADR: RYCEY) today announces it has signed a TotalCare service agreement extension with Egyptair for Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines that power four Airbus A330-200 aircraft.

The agreement will provide the airline with continued predictability as well as a known cost for the services and maintenance of the fleet.

TotalCare is designed to provide operational certainty for customers by transferring time on wing and maintenance cost risk back to Rolls-Royce. This industry-leading premium service offering is supported by data delivered through the Rolls-Royce advanced engine health monitoring system, which helps provide customers with increased operational availability, reliability and efficiency.

The Trent 700 is the market leader on the A330, its thrust of 72,000lb delivering the best take-off performance and revenue-earning potential for operators of the aircraft.

Ewen McDonald, Chief Customer Officer –
Civil Aerospace, Rolls-Royce, said:

We are delighted to continue to develop our relationship of more than 20 years with Egyptair through this long-term service agreement extension for four of their Trent 700-powered Airbus A330-200 aircraft. TotalCare enables us to deliver one of our key commitments, to maximise engine availability and reliability for our customers.

Egyptair Chairman Yehia Zakaria said:

This contract extension continues to build our relationship with Rolls-Royce and reflects the importance of TotalCare to our business. All eleven of our A330 aircraft are supported by TotalCare, helping to ensure we are able to offer the best possible service to our customers.
