Virgin goes for Rolls-Royce

ROLLS-ROYCE has won the contract to supply engines for Virgin Atlantic’s new fleet of ten Airbus A330 aircraft due for delivery from early 2011.  Rolls-Royce already supplies engines for the airline’s existing A340 fleet, and for its future 787 aircraft.  Internally the A330 is virtually the same as the A340 (but much shorter) and whilst Virgin will undoubtedly introduce innovations and updates once on board passengers will hardly be able to distinguish between the two types.  Cabin crew will be interchangeable. www.virgin-atlantic.com www.rolls-royce.com
