Rolls wins pounds 407m deal.

Aerospace group Rolls-Royce has won a pounds 407m deal to maintain jet engines for United States airline ExpressJet.

Rolls, which employs 400 staff at an aeroengine component plant in Sunderland, said it had signed an agreement to extend an existing maintenance arrangement with the Texas-based airline.

Under the so-called TotalCare deal, which already covers ExpressJet's 170-strong fleet of ERJ 135s and 145s, Rolls will also carry out work on the carrier's fleet of 104 Embraer ERJ145-XR jets.

The Brazilian-made aircraft are all powered by the Rolls AE3007 engine.
