Rolls-Royce suspends production of engines for Airbus A380

Rolls-Royce suspends production of engines for Airbus A380

Rolls-Royce PLC said Friday that it is suspending production of engines for the Airbus A380 because of delays in the superjumbo project.
"We informed the employees yesterday," said Martin Brodie, a spokesman for Rolls-Royce.
Rolls-Royce said it will continue development work on the Trent 900 engine for the A380, and said the suspension would not affect earnings guidance for this year.
The company said it expects to deliver no more than 30 of the engines to Airbus this year.
Rolls-Royce is contracted to supply engines for 48 percent of the current firm orders for the A380, while General Electric Co. is supplying the rest, Brodie said.
Airbus announced this week that deliveries of the A380, already behind schedule, would be delayed by about another year.
