Air China to Commence Operations with Trent 1000 Engines
Posted: 2016 May 21
 
Air China has become China’s first operator of the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, powered by the Trent 1000 engine. The airline took delivery of its first 787-9 from Boeing this month and the aircraft took off from Boeing’s Delivery Centre in North Charleston, SC, USA, and landed at the Beijing Capital International Airport, China. 
 
Paul Freestone, SVP, Greater China Customer Team, Civil Aerospace, Rolls-Royce, said: “We are proud to join the celebration of the delivery of the first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to China. It represents a significant landmark in the growth of Air China’s widebody fleet. We’re confident that this excellent aircraft and its Trent 1000 engines will provide many years of reliable service to Chinese operators.”
 
Air China selected the Trent 1000 engines to power its Boeing 787-9 fleet last year and also signed-up for the long-term TotalCare support. Rolls-Royce was the first to power both the Boeing 787-8 and 787-9 aircraft. Since then the Trent 1000 engine has accumulated 1.7 million flying hours with 12 customers.
