Rolls-Royce Gets Hawaiian Airlines Order

LONDON (AP) -- Rolls-Royce Group PLC, the manufacturer of the plane engine that blew apart midair on a Qantas superjumbo, has won a $420 million engine order from Hawaiian Airlines.

The London-based company said Wednesday that the deal to provide Trent 700 engines for six Airbus A330 aircraft adds to an existing order from the carrier for engines for 10 of the airliners.

Shares are up 1.1 percent at 615.5 pence ($9.60) -- they have lost around 6 percent since the blowout on the Qantas A380 almost a month ago.

Since then, Rolls-Royce has announced a string of orders, including deals worth a total of $3 billion with Air China and China Eastern Airlines.

It is working with Qantas, Germany's Lufthansa and Singapore Airlines to replace faulty Trent 900 engines.
