Une nouvelle qui émane d'abord d'une source non RR ! Question de "canal", sans doute !

LONDON (Dow Jones)--Rolls-Royce (RR.LN), a global power systems company, said Tuesday that it will power AirAsia X aircraft in an order worth up to $1.8 billion at list prices.
Moteurs pour les 10 x A350-XWB-900 annoncés comme commandés 'ferme' aujourd'hui !
MAIN FACTS:
Trent XWB engines have been selected for 10 firm and five option Airbus A350 XWB aircraft ordered by AirAsia X.
In addition, the airline has (alreday) ordered Trent 700EP (Enhanced Performance) engines for 10 A330 aircraft already on order. All engines ordered will include "TotalCare" long term service agreements.
-The Trent XWB is the fastest-selling member of the Trent engine family and the most fuel efficient. The Trent 700EP has the best performance, lowest emissions and lowest fuel burn on the A330.
-This brings the total number of Trent 700EP-powered A330s ordered by AirAsia X to 25.
-The new aircraft will help Kuala Lumpur-based AirAsia X, a low-cost, long-haul operator, extend its network capability, particularly for routes into Europe.

Tuesday, 16 June 2009
Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, will power AirAsia X aircraft in an order worth up to US$1.8bn at list prices.
Il a dû y avoir de substsantiels "discounts" !

RR ne doit pas être mécontent !
The Trent XWB is the fastest-selling member of the Trent engine family and the most fuel efficient. The Trent 700EP has the best performance, lowest emissions and lowest fuel burn on the A330. Today’s announcement brings the total number of Trent 700EP-powered A330s ordered by AirAsia X to 25.
The new aircraft will help Kuala Lumpur-based AirAsia X, a low-cost, long-haul operator, extend its network capability, particularly for routes into Europe.
Un peu d'auto-promotion, de temps à autre, ...... ça ne doit pas faire trop mal ! Very Happy
Azran Osman Rani, Chief Executive Officer, AirAsia X, said: “Our selection of these aircraft and engine combinations is a further step in our strategy to develop and succeed with low-cost long-haul operations. The efficiency of the Trent engine technology we have chosen will support our drive to keep costs to a minimum while also minimising environmental impact.”
Jolie phrase !
Jim Sheard, Rolls-Royce Senior Vice President – Asia Pacific and Africa, said: “We are delighted AirAsia X has selected Trent power for its future growth plans, selecting Trent XWBs for the first time and showing continued commitment to the Trent 700, following selection of the engine for the initial order of 15 A330s two years ago.”
Ils préparent bien les échanges ! Wink
Rolls-Royce has a leading 50 per cent market share on modern, widebody aircraft, with more than 1,500 Trent engines in service on more than 550 aircraft and a further 2,500 on order. Each of the six members of the Trent family have either been the first or launch engine on the airframe, or have gone on to take the leading market share.
L'auteur a dû jubiler quand il a trouvé l'harmonie entre les mots et les faits ! L'exclusivité du GE90-115B sur B777-300ER n'a pas servi à grand'chose ! GE voulait protéger son investissement ?
AirAsia X is the low-cost long-haul affiliate of AirAsia, named the World’s Best Low Cost Airline by Skytrax.
Histoire à suivre !
