Rolls-Royce welcomes Kuwait Airways selection of A350 aircraft.

Rolls-Royce today welcomed a decision by Kuwait Airways to order ten Airbus A350-900 aircraft, which are powered by Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines.

The new A350s will be the first Trent-powered aircraft to go into service with the airline.

Bruce Blythe, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President Customers – Civil Large Engines, said: “This decision marks a new era in our relationship with Kuwait Airways and we look forward to delivering the Trent XWB, the world’s most efficient engine flying today.”

The Trent XWB, specifically designed for the A350 XWB, is the largest-selling Trent engine ever, with more than 1,600 already sold. It powered the A350 XWB to its first test flight in June.
