Rolls-Royce celebrated the delivery of its 1,500th Trent 700 turbofan engine to power AirAsia X Airbus A330ceo (current engine option).

The engine first entered service in 1995 as the first member of the Trent engine family – today it has accumulated more than 30 million flying hours and is in service with 66 operators. More than 1,650 Trent 700s are now in service or on firm order, making it the largest Trent engine fleet in service.

The Trent 700 has won 67 per cent of new orders over the last three years and accounting for a similar percentage of future A330ceo deliveries.

Experience from the Trent 700 has also gone into the new Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engine that powers the Airbus A330neo aircraft. AirAsia X selected 50 of the aircraft earlier this year.

AirAsia X operates 17 Airbus A330 ceos powered by Trent 700 engines. The airline's first A330ceo entered into service in 2008.

The Trent 700 is a three spool high bypass turbofan aircraft engine.It comes in 2 thrust ratings, 67,500 lbf (300 kN) and 71,100 lbf (316 kN). It first entered service on Cathay Pacific's A330s in March 1995.
