Rolls-Royce looks set to supply engines to power Airbus A330s

Rolls-Royce has won an order worth $280m (£180m), at list prices, from Avianca, part of the AviancaTaca group, for Trent 700 engines to power four Airbus A330 freighter aircraft.

The contract includes long-term TotalCare services support.

The order confirms a memorandum of understanding announced in November 2011.

The four A330s will be operated by AviancaTaca subsidiary Tampa Cargo, establishing Tampa Cargo as the first A330 freight operator in Latin America.

The AviancaTaca group currently operates seven passenger Trent 700-powered A330s, with another three of the aircraft on firm order.
