Honeywell will supply its Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) to provide air conditioning, main engine starting and electrical power for AirAsia’s recent order of up to 125 Airbus A320 aircraft. In addition, Honeywell signed a maintenance agreement with AirAsia to service the APUs. Honeywell and AirAsia had previously announced a similar contract in 2006 for the airline’s first 100 aircraft. This additional contract, which runs through 2021, covers AirAsia’s added A320 single-aisle planes, scheduled for delivery beginning in 2009 through 2013. Financial terms were not disclosed. Honeywell’s 131-9A APU has been in service since 1998 and is in use on more than 1,400 aircraft by 90 customers. For related news
