FRANKFURT: The European aviation safety regulator ordered airlines to replace some Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines on their aircraft as some components are suspected to have corroded.It said airlines must de-pair affected engines, which means that where a plane has two affected engines installed, one of them must be removed, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) said in an Emergency Airworthiness Directive published on its website on Thursday.Rolls-Royce told investors in August that 400 to 500 Trent 1000 engines were affected by problems with components wearing out earlier than expected, according to a conference call transcript.The affected engines are primarily installed on Boeing 787 aircraft, according to EASA.(Reporting by Maria Sheahan; Editing by Victoria Bryan)
