LONDON — Rolls-Royce PLC said Trans World Airlines has chosen its most powerful long-haul engine to power recently ordered Airbus A-330 airliners in a deal worth more than $620 million.

TWA has agreed to buy 20 of the A-330 twin-engined aircraft along with an option for 20 additional aircraft, making it the largest A-330 order to date.

TWA is scheduled to receive the planes in late 1994.
