Air China selected a range of Honeywell avionics equipment for its fleet of new Boeing 777-300ERs, the companies announced this week at the Singapore Airshow.

The systems selected include Honeywell’s IntuVue 3-D weather system; SATCOM with SwiftBroadband; Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) with Mode S transponders; and Flight Data Recorders (FDR) and Cockpit Voice Recorders (CVR). Air China has also selected Honeywell to provide wheels and steel brakes for its purchase and lease of Boeing 737NGs over the next 10 years.

“As the country’s flagship carrier, leading the way in fleet operational efficiency and safety is of paramount importance to Air China,” said Briand Greer, president of Honeywell Aerospace Asia Pacific. “These agreements underscore the long-standing partnership between Honeywell and Air China, and ensure that the carrier is able to maximize performance, lower operating costs and ultimately deliver an improved passenger experience.”
