Rolls-Royce engines cause further Dreamliner disruptions

The company makes engines for jets

A Virgin spokeswoman said it had been aware of the increased inspections announced on Friday and that the cover it had in place would be sufficient.

General Electric engines used on some Boeing 787 Dreamliners are not affected.

There are 380 package C engines now in-service with airlines.

It stresses that neither the Trent 1000 TEN powerplant nor the Package B version of the engine will be affected by the new inspections.

It also noted that the cost of the problem was expected to rise higher than £370 bill it indicated in its annual results but said this would reduce discretionary spending to offset the increase.

As of 08:36 BST, Rolls-Royce's share price had given up 1.57 percent to 867.40p, underperforming the broader United Kingdom market, with the benchmark FTSE 100 index now standing 0.09 percent lower at 7,251.80 points.

More than 50 percent of the Dreamliner fleet are powered by the rival GE GEnX-1B engines.

Warren East, the company's chief executive, said: "We sincerely regret the disruption this will cause to our customers and our team of technical experts and service engineers is working around the clock to ensure we return them to full service as soon as possible".

Air New Zealand global passengers face more disruption from problems with some of the Rolls-Royce engines on its Dreamliners.

It has also redesigned specific parts of the compressor, with the first parts now in manufacturer and due to be incorporated in engines early next year after first being validated and certified.

The aerospace and engineering giant said it had chose to carry out more checks on the 380 engines now in service with airlines from the "package C" tranche of production, the majority of the 500 in operation.

This type of check is usually required after reaching making 2000 one-way flights, however Roll-Royce are requiring them to now be checked after 300 flights.

In December, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) ordered airlines to replace some Rolls Trent 1000 engines. Rolls-Royce advises 380 engines globally are impacted by the directive, including nine in the Air New Zealand 787 fleet.

Air New Zealand expects that there will be some impact to its worldwide schedule as a result of the checks.
