Rolls-Royce Plc Secures Long-Term Maintenance Contract By British Midland
Rolls-Royce Plc has been awarded a long-term maintenance contract by British Midland for the V2500 engines that power the airline's new fleet of Airbus A320 series aircraft. The deal is worth 40 million pounds over 10 years. British Midland currently plans to operate a total of 22 A320s and A321s, the first of which entered service in April 1998. V2500 maintenance will take place at East Kilbride, near Glasgow, Scotland. The facility already handles the Rolls-Royce Tay, which powers British Midland's Fokker jet fleet.
