Turkish carrier Turk Hava Yollari (THY) has awarded Rolls-Royce a $350m (£213m) contract to supply Trent engines to power five Airbus A330 aircraft, scheduled for delivery from 2010.
The contract includes long-term TotalCare service support.
This contract follows the July 2009 announcement that Trent 700 engines will also power seven THY A330 aircraft, a contract worth $470m (£286m) at list prices.
Candan Karlitekin, chairman THY, said: ‘The aircraft represents an exciting new phase of development for the airline and our shareholders. The commitment of Rolls-Royce in supporting our ambitions is an important factor in our plans.’
The latest THY order for Trent 700 engines will cover three A330 passenger aircraft and two A330 freighter aircraft.
