Rolls-Royce has signed a one billion-dollar contract, at list prices, with Japan's Skymark Airlines for Trent 900 engines to power six Airbus A380 aircraft.

The Trent 900 order, which follows the announcement of a letter of intent for the engines in September 2011, includes long-term TotalCare service support.

The aircraft are expected to enter into service in 2014.

The airline has also signed a letter of intent for Trent 700 engines to power up to 10 leased Airbus A330s, including TotalCare.

The aircraft will be the first A330s in Skymark's fleet and will enter into service in 2014.

Skymark is a new customer for Rolls-Royce and the only carrier in Japan to select both the Trent 900 and Trent 700.

Bruce Blythe, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President - Civil Aerospace, commented: "We are delighted Skymark Airlines is putting its trust in our technology and support services. This latest order and letter of intent reinforces the market leading positions of these Trent engines."
