Rolls-Royce is in the middle of a shake-up under new chief executive Warren East.

Warren East has changed senior management at Rolls-Royce and changed the structure of the company in an attempt to make it more transparent.

The company’s reorganization was a response to a series of profit warnings.

Under the deal with Norwegian, Rolls-Royce will provide its TotalCare service contracts for the new aircraft, as well as for the engines on 11 other 787 aircraft leased by Norwegian.

Norwegian has options to buy 10 more Dreamliners, which would also be powered by Rolls-Royce engines.
