Aerospace and defence contractor Rolls-Royce has bagged a $170m share of a follow-on order for V2500 engines from Indian low-cost carrier Air Deccan to power 30 additional Airbus A320s.

The new engine order brings the number of V2500-powered A320s on order from Bangalore-based Air Deccan to 62.

The V2500 is produced by the International Aero Engines consortium (IAE) in which the UK group is a senior shareholder.
