According to the statement released by Rolls-Royce, the TotalCare service agreement is meticulously crafted to offer customers operational certainty by shifting the time on wing and maintenance cost risk back to Rolls-Royce.

“This premium service, a leader in the industry, is reinforced by data delivered through the advanced Rolls-Royce engine health monitoring system,” the statement said, adding that this system significantly contributes to enhancing operational availability, reliability, and efficiency for the customers.

“We are delighted to sign the second TotalCare agreement this year with EgyptAir, which has been a long-standing customer for over 20 years,” said Ewen McDonald, Chief Customer Officer – Civil Aerospace at Rolls-Royce.

The Chairman of EgyptAir Holding, Yahia Zakaria, stated that EgyptAir looks forward to continuing collaboration with Rolls-Royce to support its A350-900 fleet.  

Rolls-Royce also stated that its Trent XWB engine is known for its reliability and versatility, and it efficiently powers short and long-haul flights, making it an ideal choice for operators with diverse networks, including passenger and freighter operations.

 “With a 15 percent fuel consumption advantage over the first generation of Trent engines, the Trent XWB offers superior performance and noise levels. It is certified to operate on a 50 percent Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) blend today and is proven compatible with 100 percent SAF for the future.”

The company added that these engines advance EgyptAir’s sustainability efforts.
