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

The agreement will continue to provide the airline with predictability as well as a known cost for the services and maintenance.

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 sign this long-term service agreement extension with Tunisair for their Trent 700-powered Airbus A330-200 aircraft. We look forward to continuing to develop our relationship with Tunisair through this service agreement and to maximising their fleet performance.”

Khaled Chelly, CEO, Tunisair, said:

We value the strong relationship we have built over the years with Rolls-Royce, and we have seen the value of TotalCare as an important tool to ensure engine availability and reliability. We are therefore pleased to sign this contract extension to ensure our engines continue to be supported in service.”
