Rolls-Royce confirms Trent 7000 and Trent XWB-97 engine order from STARLUX Airlines

Rolls-Royce announces that it has won an order for Trent 7000 and Trent XWB-97 engines from STARLUX Airlines to power three Airbus A330neo and five A350F aircraft. The Trent 7000 and Trent XWB-97 are the exclusive engines for the respective aircraft.

The order adds to the existing STARLUX fleet of eight Trent 7000-powered A330-900s and 18 Trent XWB-powered A350s, and marks the first time the airline has added freighters to the fleet.

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

We welcome this order for further Trent 7000 and Trent XWB-97 engines, and thank STARLUX for its continued confidence in the power of our Trent engines. We are proud to continue supporting the expansion of STARLUX, including its new freighter operations, and look forward to supporting these new aircraft as they enter into service.”

Glenn Chai, CEO, STARLUX Airlines, said:

STARLUX Airlines has been continuously cultivating the cargo market since the beginning of operations, especially when Taiwan’s geographical location brought tremendous advantages. With this order, STARLUX Airlines becomes the first Taiwanese airline to operate the next-generation A350F widebody freighter. The A350F with Rolls-Royce Trent engines has unbeatable efficiency in terms of fuel burn, CO2 emissions and economics, offering significant benefits of energy-saving and carbon reduction in the era of climate change. It not only meets customer requirements for carbon reduction but also aligns with STARLUX’s ESG plan to achieve zero emissions by 2050. Additionally, the three new A330neo will also provide greater flexibility for passenger operations and further strengthen our fleet advantage.”
