Dr Jong Chul Kim, CEO Air Premia, said: “We are pleased to select the Trent 1000 to power the very first aircraft for our fleet. We have great confidence in Rolls-Royce and its capabilities and look forward to it powering our aircraft in service.”

Chris Cholerton, Rolls-Royce, President – Civil Aerospace, said: “This is a great endorsement of our Trent 1000 engine and we warmly welcome Air Premia into our family of engine operators. We look forward to working with them and wish them every success with their new enterprise.”

The airline will use its 787-9 aircraft on routes of more than six hours to North America, Europe and Oceania. It plans to start services in 2020 with long-haul services from 2021.

The Trent 1000 has powered the first flight and entry into service of every version of the Dreamliner – the 787-8, 787-9 and 787-10.
