More than 90% of Trent engine orders include a TotalCare package, which sees Rolls-Royce maintain the engines throughout their service life.
Eric Schulz, Rolls-Royce’s president of civil large engines, said: “We are very proud to open our new state-of-the-art London Heathrow Service Centre, which joins our global network of service centres.
“As our order book and customer demand for our TotalCare support services continue to grow, we are committed to ensuring we deliver excellent support, on time, every time.”
