A major new program has been awarded to Aircelle (Safran), with the company's
selection to supply nacelles for Airbus' latest A330 version - the A330neo
(new engine option) jetliner.

These nacelles are to equip the A330neo's two large Rolls-Royce Trent 7000
turbofan powerplants, and will use Aircelle's experience gained in developing
and supplying nacelles for the Airbus A380 jetliner's high-thrust engines -
which are in a similar size category.

"This is another endorsement of our company's role as a world-leading engine
nacelle supplier, and provides an important addition to our product line,
which covers everything from business jets and regional passenger aircraft to
the largest jetliners," said Aircelle Chairman and CEO Martin Sion. "We are
committed to making this project a success."

As with the A380, Aircelle will apply its expertise in the use of composite
materials, acoustic treatment and system architecture for the A330neo
nacelles. Production activity will involve all of Aircelle's primary
industrial sites: Le Havre, France; Burnley, England; and Casablanca, Morocco;
with painting, assembly and delivery performed from its Colomiers, France
facility located near Airbus' A330 final assembly line at Toulouse Blagnac

Aircelle currently supplies nacelle packages - including company-built thrust
reversers - for in-production A330 variants with Rolls-Royce Trent 700
engines, having provided nearly 1,400 since the beginning of deliveries in the
