Aircelle To Support British Airway’s Trent 900 Nacelles
Rolls-Royce and Aircelle have signed a service contract for the Trent 900 engine nacelles that will be fitted to British Airways Airbus A380s. The airline has ordered 12 of the type.
Under the agreement, starting in 2013 Safran subsidiary Aircelle will ensure the availability of key Trent 900 nacelle components, including thrust reversers, fan cowls, air inlets and exhaust systems, to be located at the airline’s London Heathrow airport technical base. Aircelle will also position some 130 line-replaceable unit part items at the technical base and will create a field service office at Rolls-Royce’s facility near Heathrow, offering around-the-clock support.
