Honeywell has signed distribution agreements with Global Aerospace Logistics (GAL) of Abu Dhabi and Transworld Aviation of Dubai to quicken response times on orders from Honeywell customers. GAL (Stand W170) provides maintenance and repair of aircraft and engines, manning, logistics, training, aircraft control, spare parts sales, aircraft trading and other services for operators in the UAE.

“We are pleased to partner with Honeywell in the UAE,” said Brig. Gen. (ret) Hassan Yousuf, CEO of GAL. “Through our close proximity and strong relationship with UAE military operators, such as the Presidential Guard, we can meet the requests of Honeywell’s UAE customers and ensure that we fulfill all their operational needs.”

Transworld Aviation (Stand C610), based in Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai, provides spares, parts and maintenance provisioning for Middle Eastern and African (MEA) defense customers and commercial helicopter operators (excluding UAE).

“As one of the region’s largest aviation distributors, we are delighted to be partnering with Honeywell in MEA,” said Abdulla Sulaimani, chairman of Transworld Aviation. “This distribution agreement will enable Honeywell to shorten lead times on component orders and reduce turnaround times for repairs, ensuring customer order requests and queries are dealt with in a timely manner.”
