Dunlop Aircraft Tyres (Booth M93) is exhibiting new radial tires for regional aircraft including the Embraer E-Jets and ATR 42/72. “This product innovation, combined with our new tire distribution and retreading facility in China, gives aircraft operators increased choice…in this expanding market,” said Ian Edmonson, the company’s chairman. Dunlop’s Asia Pacific customers include China Eastern Airways, Lion Air, SpiceJet and Qantas link.
Last year, Flybe, Europe’s largest regional carrier, awarded Dunlop an exclusive five-year contract to supply new and retreaded nose and main wheel tyres for its fleet of Embraer 175 aircraft. Dunlop had previously supported the airline with tyres for its fleet of Bombardier Q400 turboprops.
