LONDON -- Rolls-Royce has secured an order for Trent 7000 engines to power 40 Airbus A330neo aircraft from Emirates. The order includes Rolls-Royce’s flagship TotalCare long term service support. Emirates has also ordered 30 Airbus A350 aircraft, powered by the Trent XWB, also to be covered by TotalCare. Both engine types are the sole powerplant for their respective aircraft.

Under an agreement reached with Emirates, we will also provide Trent 900 engines for a further 14 Airbus A380s, taking the total Emirates A380 fleet powered by Trent 900 engines to 33 aircraft. This agreement supersedes previous deals with Emirates for a total of 52 A380 aircraft powered by the Trent 900.

Rolls-Royce also notes the news that Airbus is to end A380 deliveries in 2021. We will provide engines for the 17 remaining Trent 900-powered Airbus A380s to be delivered to customers including Emirates and we will support the whole Trent 900 fleet in service throughout its lifetime.

DUBAI -- Lufthansa Technik has received the approval from the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for maintenance services on aircraft registered in Saudi Arabia. In January 2019, a first A-Check on a corresponding Airbus A320 was already conducted by Lufthansa Technik Middle East mechanics in the hangar of DC Aviation Al-Futtaim LLC, a joint venture of DC Aviation and the Al-Futtaim Group at Al Maktoum International Airport (Dubai World Central Airport) in Dubai. The 400 man-hours check was the second A-Check accomplished in January 2019 within the Lufthansa Technik and DC Aviation Al-Futtaim cooperation. It included for example the check of all systems which are relevant for flight safety, the exchange of several components, or the completion of service bulletins.

Omar Aker, Lufthansa Technik's Regional Sales Manager stated: "We are only the second VIP MRO supplier in the Gulf region approved for Saudi registered aircraft of the Airbus A320CJ family and Boeing BBJ types. The first A-Check maintenance has been finished within budget and ahead of schedule". As part of the long-lasting cooperation agreement between Lufthansa Technik and DC Aviation Al-Futtaim, the product portfolio consists of regular checks as well as maintenance services, including unplanned repairs for example in the case of an AOG (Aircraft on Ground). It also features services for aircraft cabins, including small modifications. Moreover, there are plans to establish a mobile aircraft and cabin service to serve the region.

WASHINGTON -- The United States Department of Transportation (DoT) released its January 2019 Air Travel Consumer Report (ATCR) on marketing and reporting air carrier data compiled for the month of November 2018. The full consumer report and other aviation consumer matters of interest to the public can be found at http://www.transportation.gov/airconsumer. The January report was delayed due to the lapse in appropriations.

In November 2018, marketing carriers posted an on-time arrival rate of 79.3 percent, down from the 82.3 percent on-time rate in October 2018. On-time numbers for marketing carriers were not reported in previous years.

Highest Marketing Carrier On-Time Arrival Rates were Hawaiian Airlines Network 90.2 percent; Spirit Airlines 82.1 percent; and Southwest Airlines 81.7 percent.

Lowest Marketing Carrier On-Time Arrival Rates were Frontier Airlines 70.1 percent; JetBlue Airways 71.2 percent; and United Airlines Network 75.7 percent.

Consumers who want on-time performance data for specific flights should call their airline’s reservation number or their travel agent. This information is available on the computerized reservation systems used by these agents. The information is also available on the appropriate carrier’s website.
