Plus I totally agree! Bole will soon run out of parking space for ET's growing fleet as it does not have much more room for expansion.

Derby's Rolls-Royce wins huge £1.2 billion engine order from Ethiopian Airlines Read more at http://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/derby-s-rolls-royce-wins-huge-1-2-billion-engine-order-from-ethiopian-airlines/story-30400494-detail/story.html#02zB1Ri7SzvGV

Rolls-Royce has secured a £1.2 billion order for an aero engine which it manufactures in Derby.

The firm, which has its civil aerospace division in Sinfin, has received the order from Ethiopian Airlines to supply Trent XWB engines for 10 new Airbus A350-900 aircraft. The deal also includes a TotalCare service support agreement, which will see Rolls-Royce maintain the engines throughout their service life.

And it includes TotalCare for 14 more aircraft which Ethiopian Airlines already has in service or on order. Ethiopian Airlines became Africa's first operator of the A350 in 2015 and currently has four of its initial 14 aircraft in service.

The Trent XWB, which has been designed and developed in Derby, has been billed by Rolls-Royce as the world's most efficient large aero engine. Rolls-Royce is the exclusive engine supplier for the Airbus A350 and to date, the company has secured orders from more than 40 customers.

n total, more than 1,600 Trent XWB engines have so far been ordered. Ethiopian's order brings Rolls-Royce's manufacturing backlog to more than 1,500 engines. The Trent XWB is built in Derby and Germany and according to Rolls-Royce, its Trent XWB orders represent six years of production.

Tewolde Gebremariam, chief executive of Ethiopian Airlines, said: "We have been impressed by the performance of both aircraft and engines in service, which gave us confidence to go forward with our order for 10 additional aircraft, which will bring even greater levels of comfort and service to our customers.

Eric Schulz, Rolls-Royce's president of civil aerospace, said: "A repeat order from Ethiopian is a huge testament to the performance of our engines in service. We look forward to continuing to deliver excellent efficiency to a customer that continues to bring the latest engine and aircraft technology to its fleet."

The deal was announced on the second day of the Paris Airshow, which is taking place throughout this week. It is a key event for the aerospace industry, bringing together airlines, aircraft manufacturers and engine suppliers like Rolls-Royce.

The event alternates each year between Paris and Farnborough. Two years ago, at the last Paris Airshow, Rolls-Royce announced a deal for Trent 1000 engines to power six Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft ordered by Ethiopian Airlines. Five of these are now in service.

Rolls-Royce signs $1.5bn deal with Ethiopian Airlines

21 Jun 2017 Midlands

Rolls-Royce will provide engines to Ethiopian Airlines in a deal valued at $1.5bn.
The Trent XWB engines, which are made in Derby and Barnoldswick in Lancashire, will be used for Ethiopian Airlines' ten new Airbus A350-900. The order also includes TotalCare for 14 of the aircraft already in service or on order.
The new order brings Rolls' manufacturing backlog to more than 1,500 engines, representing more than six years of production from its centres in the UK and Germany.
Tewolde Gebremariam, chief executive of Ethiopian Airlines, said: "We have been impressed by the performance of both aircraft and engines in service, which gave us confidence to go forward with our order for ten additional aircraft which will bring even greater levels of comfort and service to our customers."
Eric Schulz, Rolls-Royce, president of civil aerospace, added: "A repeat order from Ethiopian is a huge testament to the performance of our engines in service. We look forward to continuing to deliver excellent efficiency to a customer that continues to bring the latest engine and aircraft technology into its fleet."
Ethiopian Airlines ordered Trent 1000 engines for six Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft at the last Paris Airshow, five of which are in service, and have lease arrangements for an additional four aircraft.
The company became Africa’s first A350 operator in 2015 and has four of its initial 14 aircraft in service

I am all for the expansion but it should always be in conjunction with improved ground and air customer service. Where is the news on that? ... it is only about purchasing more assets.
