Rolls-Royce suffers fresh wave of troubles with Dreamliner engines

Rolls-Royce suffers fresh wave of troubles with Dreamliner engines

"Rolls-Royce has advised that some of the Trent 1000 engines in the airline's Boeing 787-9 fleet require maintenance sooner than previously indicated", Air New Zealand said in a statement.

Reuters reported this morning that Air New Zealand had said that "two recent events" involving Rolls-Royce's Trent 1000 engines had prompted it to cancel and delay some worldwide flights over the coming weeks.

The New Zealand Transport Accident Investigation Commission (TAIC) is looking into two recent 787-9 flights that were turned back after takeoff after problems arose during the flight.

"Under the alliance, Singapore Airlines has access to New Zealand's domestic, Australia and Pacific Islands network, and similarly Air New Zealand to over 50 destinations throughout Singapore Airlines' South East Asia, Europe and South Africa network", says Mr Tasker.

Customers are encouraged to check this first before calling the airline's contact centre.

"Our investigation team is working closely with the airline, Civil Aviation Authority, engine-manufacturer Rolls Royce, and our colleague agencies in the United Kingdom and USA". The investigation into that incident recommended that Rolls-Royce review the design of the intermediate pressure turbines. News of the replacement, however, was seen as a major blow for the carrier, which is the world's largest operator of 787s, as the process can take up to three years.

"The new flight to Auckland will increase convenience for our customers and demonstrates our commitment to the New Zealand market", he said.

"It's not uncommon for long-term engine programmes to experience technical issues during their life and we manage them through proactive maintenance", a Rolls-Royce spokeswoman was quoted as saying by Reuters.
