Rolls-Royce has signed a long-term engine service agreement worth more than $350 million with Mexicana Group for the fleet of aircraft operated by its subsidiary, MexicanaClick. The TotalCare agreement covers 25 newly leased Boeing 717-200s, powered by Rolls-Royce BR715 engines.
Today, more than 55 percent of Rolls-Royce's modern jet engine fleet is covered by TotalCare or CorporateCare service agreements.
"Mexicana prides itself on reliability, innovation,and technology," says Ricardo Baston, Executive Vice President, Corporate Planning and Fleet Transactions, Mexicana Airlines. "We have relied on high-performance Rolls-Royce engines for nearly 20 years. Selection of the BR715 for MexicanaClick will bring class leading payload and reliable performance, supported by Rolls-Royce's world class TotalCare program."
"We are delighted to begin the next chapter in this long-standing relationship," says Lewis Prebble, Rolls-Royce Vice President of Customer Business. "TotalCare will deliver tailored and comprehensive engine services for Mexicana, underpinned by deep engine expertise that only we can provide."
The Boeing 717-200, for which Rolls-Royce provides the sole power plant available, is the quietest, most efficient airframe and engine combination in its class. The BR715 offers operators benefits such as: noise levels far below current [Chapter 4 noise rules] regulations; emissions well below current ICAO regulations; and up to 25 percent improved fuel burn relative to previous generation power plants. Specific fuel consumption (SFC) levels are the lowest in its thrust class, enabling outstanding aircraft range.
The agreement will bring the airline’s Rolls-Royce powered fleet of 128 aircraft, in service and on order, under TotalCare® arrangements.
