Cathay Pacific Airways today announced that it has taken delivery of the 1,000th Trent 700 engine produced by Rolls-Royce. The engine will be deployed on the airline’s Airbus A330-300 fleet of passenger aircraft.

Cathay Pacific was the first airline to receive a Trent 700 and together with its sister airline Dragonair is the now the world’s biggest operator of the engine. The airline group currently operates 48 Trent-powered A330 aircraft and has another 19 on firm order.

While it cannot compare to recent 1000 milestone for 777 family, Trent 700 proves to be a very reliable engine with outstanding performance. Congratulations to both Cathay and RR.
