Engine-maker Rolls-Royce has won a $630m (£408m) contract with Brazil-based Synergy Group, which operates several airlines in South America and one in Africa, to provide Trent 700 engines and services for the nine Airbus A330s it agreed to buy yesterday.

Rolls-Royce will offer TotalCare long-term engine service support for Synergy Aerospace’s A330s, with yesterday’s additional nine aircraft worth $1.8bn (£1.1bn) according to Airbus’ list prices.

The Trent 700 is the only engine specifically designed for the Airbus A330 and is the most fuel efficient option. Of the nine aircraft ordered, six will be passenger and three freighter.

More than 1,400 Trent 700 engines are now in service or on firm order.

Synergy Group’s chairman Germán Efromovich said:  “We look forward to continuing our relationship with Rolls-Royce and have confidence in the benefits of both its Trent 700 technology and support services.”

Peter Turner, Rolls-Royce, Civil Aerospace Vice President – Customer Business, said:  “The Trent 700 has become the engine of choice for A330 operators, selected for around 75% of future engine orders on the A330.”
