The service enables Rolls-Royce customers to access its OEM expertise and supplier network, with Rolls-Royce acting as a one-stop shop to organise labour, parts and/or tooling for any Trent XWB engine change event. It further improves our ability to ensure aircraft are available for service, supporting our vision that every Rolls-Royce powered aircraft departs and lands on time, every time, as efficiently as possible.

Offered as a Foundation Service within the Rolls-Royce CareStore, customers are able to request a quote for their engine change event requirements from our 24/7 Aircraft Availability Centre, be that a home base or remote site location.

HAECO Hong Kong has been selected as the first service provider to support Rolls-Royce in delivering the Engine Change Service, providing established capabilities and a long-standing relationship with Rolls-Royce.

Lee McConnellogue, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President – Aircraft Availability Services, Civil Aerospace, said: “We are constantly looking at ways we can further improve aircraft availability and this service gives us additional capability to do just that. We wanted to launch with a partner who has a heritage of delivery and engineering expertise and HAECO Hong Kong fits that requirement perfectly.”

Patrick Wong, HAECO Hong Kong’s Executive General Manager, Line Services, said: “We are looking forward to working with Rolls-Royce on this new service. We know airlines are looking for efficiency improvements that get their aircraft back in service faster, and that is what we can offer.”

Rolls-Royce plans to expand the service across other members of the Trent engine family and also create a global network of service support providers.

Established in 1950, HAECO is one of the world’s leading independent aircraft engineering and maintenance groups. It is one of the largest Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul service providers in terms of capacity.
