Finnair has awarded Rolls-Royce a long-term contract to service the engines on its new Airbus A350 XWB aircraft.
Rolls-Royce's Trent XWB engines are used exclusively for the Airbus A350 XWB and the agreement brings Finnair's entire A350 XWB fleet under Rolls Royce's service package.
Known as a TotalCare agreement, it will see Rolls-Royce maintain the Derby-built engines throughout their service life.
Finnair said it has firm orders for 19 A350 XWB aircraft, the first 4 of which are expected to arrive in the fleet in this year, with another 7 in 2016 and 2017. The complete order will be fulfilled by 2023.

Jari Huhtinen, Finnair's vice-president of technical operations, said: "The world-class engine servicing offered by Rolls-Royce is one important element in maintaining the reliability record that Finnair is known for. The contract also helps us effectively manage the life cycle costs of the engines."
Bruce Blythe, Rolls-Royce's senior vice-president of customers (civil large engines), said: "We welcome Finnair as a new TotalCare customer. We look forward to providing services that will help ensure Finnair is fully supported through its A350 XWB entry into service and beyond."
