Proactive Investors - Rolls-Royce Holdings PLC (LON:RR) has received an order from Starlux Airlines on the back of the carrier's purchase of new Airbus Group (EPA:AIR) jets at the Singapore air show.

Starlux penned orders for three Airbus A330neo passenger jets and five A350 freighters, all of which will be powered by Rolls-Royce engines.

“We welcome this order for further Trent 7000 and Trent XWB-97 engines, and thank Starlux for its continued confidence in the power of our Trent engines,” Rolls-Royce civil aero boss Ewen McDonald commented.

The Trent 7000 and Trent XWB-97 are the exclusive engines for the Airbus A330neo and A350 respectively.

Taiwan-based Starlux is set to receive the A330 passenger jets between 2025 and 2026, followed by the freighters, with the airline aiming to become a key operator between Southeast Asia to North America after being set up in 2020.

Tuesday saw further orders between manufacturers and carriers finalised as the Singapore air show got underway, meanwhile.

Boeing Co (NYSE:BA), which has been at the centre of controversy since a door panel fell off one of its 737 Max 9s mid-flight in January, pushed through deals with Royal Brunei and Thai Airways.

Royal Brunei Airlines ordered four 787 Dreamliners at the show, while Thai Airways and Boeing engaged in a ceremonial signing for 45 of the wide-body jets.

China’s COMAC also secured deals for over 50 of its short-haul jets from domestic carriers at the show, which marked the first time the manufacturer had showcased its C919 aircraft overseas.
