Christophe Clarenc, Senior Vice-President Engineering and Maintenance at Bangkok Airways, said: “It is imperative for Bangkok Airways to have confidence in the product and services from our suppliers, and the engine support package which we negotiated with Rolls-Royce, was a critical factor in this decision”.

Daniel Pedley, Managing Director of Rolls-Royce Thailand, added: “I am delighted that Rolls-Royce has this opportunity to support Bangkok Airways expansion plans to commence long-haul operations, and to further grow the Trent engine presence in the region.”

Bangkok Airways currently operates a fleet of three Rolls-Royce BR715-powered Boeing 717s and four Airbus A320 family aircraft – with a further seven on order – equipped with the V2500 engine from International Aero Engines, the multi-national consortium in which Rolls-Royce is a major shareholder.
