Uganda Airlines Signs up For Rolls-Royce TotalCare Solution
Uganda Airlines has signed up for Rolls-Royce TotalCare for its two new Airbus A330neo aircraft powered exclusively by Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines.
TotalCare offers airlines more than just an engine maintenance plan; it is a service concept based upon predictability and reliability.
Rolls-Royce TotalCare will give Uganda Airlines a secured cost of operating and maintaining their Trent 7000 engines, through a dollar-per-flying-hour payment mechanism, as well as enhanced aircraft availability as a result of in-depth engine knowledge provided by the engine maker.
The exclusive engine for the A330neo, the Trent 7000 is the seventh and latest member in the Trent family of engines, which recently celebrated its 25th birthday and has accumulated more than 150 million engine flying hours.
The Trent 7000, which first entered service in November 2018, draws on more than 50 million flying hours of experience from the Trent 700, the engine of choice for the original version of the A330.
The 68-72,000lb thrust Trent 7000 helps the A330neo reduce environmental impact with a 25% improvement in fuel burn per seat (compared to previous generation competitor aircraft) and a significant noise reduction.
Uganda Airlines received its first A330neo in December 2020 and the second in January 2021, becoming the first airline to fly the aircraft type in Africa.
