Bangkok--4 Oct--TQPR
Rolls-Royce today congratulated THAI as it took delivery of its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, powered by Trent 1000 engines.

The delivery, which took place at Boeing in Seattle, USA, marks a further development of a relationship between Rolls-Royce and THAI that dates back more than 50 years and has seen THAI select every Rolls-Royce Trent engine type that is in service today. The Trent 1000 has powered the first flights of every version of the aircraft – the 787-8, 787-9 and 787-10.

THAI already operates six 787-8 aircraft, all powered by the Trent 1000 and all with Rolls-Royce's flagship TotalCare® long-term service support.

Eric Schulz, Rolls-Royce, President – Civil Aerospace, said: "We warmly welcome THAI as a new operator of the 787-9 Dreamliner, powered by our Trent 1000 engines. THAI is an extremely valued customer and we look forward as it continues to expand its Dreamliner fleet."

Rolls-Royce is continuing to support THAI's 787-8 aircraft and is making progress in addressing recent engine issues which have affected its operations, with one remaining aircraft due to return to service by the middle of October. Rolls-Royce sincerely regrets the disruption that it has caused to THAI's service and remains committed to resolving this as soon as possible and to delivering the very highest standards of long-term support to THAI.
