Aero engine manufacturers Rolls-Royce have secured a £665m deal with All Nippon Airways to provide its fleet of 25 Boeing 787 Dreamliners with Trent 1000 engines.

The engines powered the first 787 into service with ANA in 2011 and have completed more than 220,000 in-service flying hours.

An ANA representative said: “We are pleased to once again select the Trent 1000 to power this extension of our 787 Dreamliner fleet. It has served us very well through our entry into service and we have received excellent customer support throughout from Rolls-Royce.”

Chief customer officer at Rolls-Royce, Dominic Horwood, said: “We are proud that ANA, the launch customer for the 787 Dreamliner, has continued to demonstrate its confidence in the performance and economics of the Trent 1000.”

ANA already has 55 of the aircraft in service or on order, all powered by the Trent 1000.
