MexicanaClick signs TotalCare agreement with Rolls-Royce
Rolls-Royce has won a long-term engine service agreement worth more than $350 million with Mexicana Group for the fleet of aircraft operated by its low-fare subsidiary, MexicanaClick. The TotalCare agreement covers 25 newly leased Boeing 717-200s, powered by Rolls-Royce BR715 engines.
More than 55% of Rolls-Royce’s modern jet engine fleet is covered by TotalCare or CorporateCare service agreements.
Ricardo Baston, executive vice-president, corporate planning and fleet transactions, Mexicana Airlines remarked, “Mexicana prides itself on reliability, innovation and technology. We have relied on high-performance Rolls-Royce engines for nearly 20 years. Selection of the BR715 for MexicanaClick will bring class leading payload and reliable performance, supported by Rolls-Royce’s world class TotalCare programme.”
