Gulf Aircraft Maintenance Company (GAMCO) has contracted Rolls-Royce to support a TotalCare agreement for Gulf Air's fleet of six Trent 700-powered A330-200s. The contract, which is valued at US$150 million, was announced at the Paris Air Show.

Under the terms deal, GAMCO will manage the contract on behalf of Gulf Air. GAMCO and Rolls-Royce have had a long term relationship involving a number of engine types since GAMCO was founded in the 1980s. Gulf Air has been a Rolls-Royce customer since its start-up in 1950.

"Today's addition of Gulf Air to the growing list of TotalCare customers underlines the appeal of our long-term service agreements. TotalCare currently covers 60 per cent of the Trent fleet and enables operators to remove the risk involved in fleet management," says Charles Cuddington, managing director, airlines, Rolls-Royce.
