Honeywell is expanding its support services for customers in Asia Pacific and Latin America, leveraging an agreement with Dallas Airmotive, based in Grapevine, Texas.

Dallas Airmotive has received authorization from Honeywell Aerospace to supply turbofan engine and auxiliary power unit (APU) support services for the Asia Pacific region. Included will be Major Periodic Inspection (MPI) services on TFE731, engines, and line authorizations on CFE738 and HTF7000 engines and APUs (36 series, RE100, RE220). Dallas Airmotive said it is planning to expand its existing in-region field support currently based in Bangalore, India, by adding mobile response teams in Singapore, Hong Kong and eastern Australia during 2011. An MPI shop for TFE731 inspections is planned to open in Singapore in January 2012.

In Latin America, customers will have expanded access to engine and APU offerings for Honeywell-powered Gulfstream, Dassault, Hawker Beechcraft and Bombardier aircraft.

“Business aviation is growing rapidly across Asia Pacific and Latin America. It’s the right time to establish a greater physical presence in those regions,” said Hugh McElroy, president of BBA Aviation Engine Repair and Overhaul Group. “This agreement will make it easier for customers in these high-growth regions to get the critical support they need in a timely manner, and is a further manifestation of Honeywell’s and Dallas Airmotive’s commitment to global service expansion.”
