Honeywell has signed several major long-term support contracts with JetBlue and US Airways.

JetBlue has contracted Honeywell to provide a 10-year component flight-hour program for its Airbus A320s. The deal calls for Honeywell to maintain the avionics suites and mechanical components aboard the airline’s aircraft, providing “predictable and controlled maintenance costs,” said Marc McGowan, vice president of airlines for the Americas. The US Airways deal is for a strategic supplier arrangement with the airline covering a variety of products and services for its fleet of more than 350 Boeing 737,757, 767 and Airbus A319, A320 and A321s.

he agreement is worth around $230 million and includes maintenance for auxiliary power units for all the aircraft along with a comprehensive service agreement for mechanical components, which increases Honeywell’s US Airways mechanical components business by 20 percent. Finally, a supply agreement has been signed covering 3,000 Airbus and Boeing components not yet provided for under the existing contract.
