The deal forms part of Silk Way West’s renewal programme, ensuring its operational sustainability until 2026. According to the agreement, Silk Way West Airlines will be provided with a minimum of 20,000 flight cycles of engine life for the next five years.

Chris Cholerton, president of Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace, said: “Utilising existing engines to provide [Silk Way West] with a cost-effective way of maintaining its fleet is an efficient and logical solution to supporting their operations until 2026.”
