Rolls-Royce values the order from Air Lease Corp for Trent XWB engines for its 25 Airbus A350s at $1.1 billion at list prices.

This is for the lessor's order on 4 February for 20 Airbus A350-900s and five A350-1000s. It also has options for an additional five of the -1000s.

The -1000 variant is powered by a higher-thrust version of the Trent XWB.

The engine, specially designed for the A350, had its first flight in February last year on an Airbus A380 flying testbed. Rolls-Royce has so far garnered 1,200 orders for the engine.
