USAIR CONFIRMS ROLLS-ROYCE ENGINES FOR MORE BOEING 757s

 RESTON, Va., March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- USAir has placed firm orders for Rolls-Royce RB211-535E4s for a further 15 Boeing 757-200 twin-engined airliners and is taking options on 15 additional Rolls-Royce-powered Boeing 757s.
 The value to Rolls-Royce in potential new business is approximately $200 million. The 15 firm orders were previously held options and means USAir now has 40 Rolls-Royce-powered Boeing 757 twinjets in service or on order, while the 15 options represent new business.
 The agreement was signed in Washington yesterday by Rolls-Royce Chairman Sir Ralph Robins and USAir Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Seth E. Schofield.
 Robins said, "This order from USAir comes a little after a year since it began 757 operations with leased aircraft, and we are delighted that an airline of USAir's stature is adding to its Rolls-Royce-powered fleet so quickly.
 "Eighty percent of Boeing 757 operators have selected the Rolls-Royce engine, and there is clearly a high degree of customer satisfaction.
 "The RB211-535 has just celebrated the 10th anniversary of its entry into service with the Boeing 757, and firm orders for Rolls-Royce powered aircraft now total 465.
 "It is one of the industry's most flexible partnerships -- equally at home on 100 or 4,000-mile routes."
 The agreement calls for the 15 firm Boeing 757 aircraft to be delivered in 1995 and 1996. Option deliveries would run from 1995.
 Rolls-Royce, through its Aerospace and Industrial Power Groups, is a world leader in gas turbine engines for aviation, marine and industrial use; power generation; and oil and gas industry products.
