China Eastern Airlines Selects Honeywell Avionics Systems
Honeywell has extended its strategic partnership with China Eastern Airlines, signing a series of agreements to provide avionics products for 58 new Boeing 737NGs, scheduled to be delivered over the next five years. Honeywell will also provide wheels and brakes for 15 new Airbus A330s.
The Honeywell avionics products that will be installed on China Eastern’s new Boeing 737NG aircraft include the IntuVue 3-D Weather Radar, Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS), and Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS).
China Eastern Airlines has also chosen Honeywell’s proven aircraft landing systems for its fleet of Airbus A330s. The agreement will provide a suite of unique aftermarket repair and maintenance programs for the braking systems through Honeywell’s joint venture with China Eastern Airlines and backed by Honeywell’s award-winning engineering and customer and product support network.
“As passenger travel in China continues to grow at a rapid pace, carriers have recognized the need for aircraft technology that maximizes the safety, capacity and efficiency of their fleets. Honeywell is helping China Eastern ensure it is well-equipped with next-generation technology to support its growth in the marketplace," said Briand Greer, president of Aerospace Asia Pacific, Honeywell.
