At the announcement of today's multi-billion pound order for Trent jet engines from Rolls Royce, Emirates president Sir Tim Clark said:
Today's announcement is significant not only because it cements the partnership between Emirates and Rolls-Royce, but also because of the significant economic impact that this will have on aviation manufacturing in the UK and Europe.
The order will secure jobs across Rolls-Royce's supply chain which stretches from Bristol in south-west England to Scotland. It will not create any new jobs, however.
Emirates also say that the deal further supports trade ties between the UK and the United Arab Emirates.
The £6.1bn deal for Rolls Royce to supply 50 engines to Dubai-based airline Emirates is the largest order in the history of the aero-engine giant, its chief-executive has announced.
Rolls-Royce chief executive John Rishton said:
We are delighted that Emirates has again placed its trust in our technology, with the biggest order in our history.
In a huge boost to UK industry, Rolls-Royce will provide Trent engines which will power 50 Airbus A380 super-jumbos that will enter service from 2016.
Rolls Royce has won a £6.1 billion order from airline Emirates for Trent engines to power 50 Airbus A380 super-jumbos, the two companies have announced.
