Welcome Trent XWB

In November 2016, a reception was held at HAESL’s facility to mark an appreciation of Cathay Pacific’s decades-long support for Rolls-Royce engines. It was also an occasion to celebrate the arrival of the Trent XWB-powered Airbus A350, while bidding farewell to the RB211-powered Boeing 747, following its 37 years of service in the Cathay Pacific fleet. 


Angus Barclay, HAESL’s Director and General Manager, addressed the invited guests, while Mr Dominic Horwood, Rolls-Royce’s Director, Customers and Services – Civil Aerospace, presented a Trent XWB fan blade to Mr Christopher Gibbs, Cathay Pacific’s Engineering Director, as a token of appreciation for the airline’s loyal support.
