The agreement is the first time T’way has selected TotalCare – adding another new member to the global family of operators relying on this service. It also marks the first time Trent 700 engines have been operated by a South Korean airline, continuing to demonstrate the global reach of an engine that has now accrued more than 60 million flying hours worldwide.

TotalCare is an engine maintenance plan and service concept based upon predictability and reliability. The agreement will give T’way a secured cost of operating and maintaining their Trent 700 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 its advanced engine health monitoring.

Mr Kim Hyung-yi, T’way Air Vice President, said: “Our A330s are the first widebodies in our fleet and provide a significant expansion in the levels of service we can provide our passengers. We value this TotalCare agreement, which will maximise aircraft availability and efficiency, allowing us to provide outstanding customer service.”

Chris Davie, Senior Vice President - Customers, Rolls-Royce, said: “We warmly welcome T’way to our TotalCare family of operators. They have bold plans for their A330 aircraft and we are honoured to be supporting their entry into service every step of the way with an incredible engine that continues to provide value to new customers and new territories.”

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.
