Honeywell is to supply avionics suites for South Korean low-cost carrier Jeju Air’s new fleet of Boeing 737-800s. The contract covers six aircraft that are due for delivery between 2013 and 2017. The cockpit equipment includes Quantum Line communications/navigation sensors, airborne collision avoidance systems (ACAS II), flight data acquisition and management. Also included are IntuVue 3-D weather radars, which have demonstrated “a 50-percent reduction in turbulence-related incidents,” claimed Honeywell. Overall, Jeju’s new Honeywell equipment will “maximize aircraft performance, decrease operating costs and increase crew efficiency,” said Honeywell.

Again in South Korea, Honeywell has inked a deal to provide Eastar Jet with 131-9 auxiliary power units (APUs) and accompanying three-year maintenance plans. The contract covers a growing fleet: six 737-800s now, with another eight due to join the airline’s fleet by 2015.
