Honeywell scores three airline deals
Honeywell will leave Singapore with agreements to place its equipment on three Asia Pacific airlines’ airplanes. The transactions involved avionics, auxiliary power units, wheels and brakes, as well as comprehensive maintenance.
The company will provide the full suite of avionics and its APU for Kingfisher Airlines, India’s fast-growing premium airline. The agreement covers avionics for new Airbus 320s, A330s and A340s, as well as 131-9A model APUs for new A320s. Deliveries of the avionics and APUs are under way and continue through aircraft deliveries planned until 2011.
Honeywell also signed a $33 million agreement to provide wheels and brakes for China Eastern Airlines’ new Boeing 737NG aircraft. Delivery of the fourteen 737-700 and six 737-800 aircraft began in 2007 and will continue through 2010.
Honeywell also inked a comprehensive maintenance program to provide integrated service and repair on Air China’s entire fleet of 180 aircraft–the largest mechanical contract in the Chinese market. The five-year pact covers Air China’s fleet of Boeing 737s, 747s and 767s, as well as Airbus A320s and A340s.
