Silk Way West Airlines signs TotalCare agreement with Rolls-Royce

Silk Way West Airlines and Rolls-Royce have signed a TotalCare® service agreement for Trent XWB engines that will power two Airbus A350 freighter aircraft.

The Trent XWB is the most efficient engine in service and supports Silk Way West Airlines’ commitment to its sustainability goals. The aircraft will expand the airline’s international services in response to growing demand for cargo services.

TotalCare is more than just an engine maintenance plan, it is a service concept based upon predictability and reliability. The agreement will give Silk Way West Airlines secured cost of operating and maintaining their Trent XWB engines through a dollar-per-flying-hour payment mechanism.

It will also deliver enhanced aircraft availability thanks to Rolls-Royce’s in-depth engine knowledge that draws on advanced engine health monitoring.

“The contract signed today with Rolls-Royce is the second such agreement that we have made together in the past year, which is a reflection of the strengthening relations between the two companies, as well as of the dynamic development and expansion of the Silk Way West Airlines fleet. We are confident that each contract we sign further enhances our position in the global air cargo market,” said Mr. Wolfgang Meier, President of Silk Way West Airlines.

Ewen McDonald, Chief Customer Officer – Civil Aerospace, Rolls-Royce, said: “We warmly welcome Silk Way West Airlines to our TotalCare family of operators. We look forward to supporting their Trent XWB-97 engines through entry into service and for many years beyond.”
