- Rolls Royce Trent 700 on an Airbus 330-200.
When Airbus was planning its new twin-jet A330 in the late 1980s, Rolls-Royce proposed a version of the Trent 600 (known as the Trent 680) to power it. However, as the A330's design weight increased, it became clear that more thrust would be required, and Rolls proposed the Trent 720, the first member of the Trent 700 series.
In April 1989 Cathay Pacific became the first customer to specify an Airbus aircraft powered by Rolls-Royce engines when it ordered ten A330s powered by the Trent 700. The following month TWA followed suit with an order for twenty A330s. Air Canada chose the engine for its fleet of eight A330-300s.
