Built on the most advanced technology available, every aspect of the Trent 7000 is designed to boost the profitability of the plane it powers.

Drawing on the technology of the Trent XWB, the most efficient engine on the market, the Trent 7000 advances the A330neo in key areas.

The Trent 7000 is built to be efficient. Everything from the 112” fan to the various thrust ratings work together to deliver a leaner, greener and more profitable flight.

Together, the A330neo and Trent 7000 deliver a double-digit fuel burn reduction compared to the Trent 700 on the A330, saving 14% fuel per seat and 700,000 U.S. gallons of fuel per aircraft every year, based on a typical mission.

Take a look below at how this saving is achieved.

Importantly, the Trent 7000 incorporates innovations which increase the versatility of the aircraft in service.

Rolls Royce’s “Lifting Insights” lengthen the engine’s profitable on-wing life even in high-stress, high-cycle environments. This is part of Rolls-Royce’s IntelligentEngine vision, in which the engine becomes increasingly connected and contextually aware to deliver advanced reliability and efficiency.

With the opportunity to design a new wing and new engine for the A330neo, Airbus engineers were able to use the latest 3D digital modelling tools developed during the A350XWB programme.

This produces state of the art integration of the engine and wing, reducing drag and noise.

“We’ve brought some real innovation to the Trent 7000, which is particularly useful in high-cycle environments. We use data from the engines themselves to calculate the optimum life of key components, and it keeps the engines performing for longer whilst minimising costs for airlines.”

Peter Johnston, Rolls-Royce

Airbus and Rolls-Royce have been working together for over 70 years – their predecessor companies having famously invented the jet airliner.

In 1989, the Rolls-Royce and Airbus widebody family came together for the first time, and the companies continue to work together to this day, now delivering the latest Trent 7000 engine for the A330neo Programme.


The engine and aircraft were developed together, and the benefits of single-source engine supply continue to bring efficiencies to customers.
