Istanbul-based MNG already operates one A330-200F, which is also powered by the Trent 700 and has TotalCare service support. The Trent 700 has established itself as the engine of choice for the A330, with more than 60% market share for combined passenger and freighter aircraft.

Rolls-Royce TotalCare service not only provides world-class support to our passenger airlines customers but also to our air cargo carriers. TotalCare offers more than just an engine maintenance plan; it is a service concept based upon predictability and reliability.

This agreement will give İstanbul-based MNG Airlines a secured cost of operating and maintaining their Trent 700 engines through a dollar-per-flying-hour payment mechanism. It will support fleet efficiency, creating better economics for MNG Airlines’ customers. It will also deliver enhanced aircraft availability thanks to our in-depth engine knowledge that draws on our advanced engine health monitoring and on more than 60 million flying hours the Trent 700 has accumulated in service.

The Trent 700 delivers the highest thrust on the A330 freighter – which translates into extra payload compared to other engine choices. As well as emitting less CO2 and being the most economical engine to operate on the A330, the Trent 700 is also the most reliable option, with 99.9% dispatch reliability.

John Kelly, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President Customers, said: “We look forward to continuing to support MNG Airlines with our TotalCare services as it adds to its A330 fleet. The Trent 700 has proven itself as the market choice for the A330 and our services will help MNG Airlines maximise all of its benefits.”

Ali Sedat Ozkazanc, Managing Director, MNG Airlines said: “With a growing fleet, we are continuing to keep our customers delighted and confirm our leading position in our country and industry. We need to maintain our A330 freighter fleet at the highest operational reliability level and keep our maintenance cost at minimum. Our TotalCare agreement allows us to do just that, drawing on many years of Rolls-Royce expertise with this engine. We would like to thank Rolls-Royce for this TotalCare opportunity.”
