Honeywell’s communications and navigation sensors, collision avoidance and 3-D weather radar will increase efficiency and safety for the South Korean airline
SINGAPORE, February 16, 2012 – JEJU AIR, the fastest-growing low-cost carrier (LCC) in South Korea, has selected Honeywell (NYSE: HON) Aerospace to provide a full suite of avionics for its new fleet of Boeing 737-800 NG passenger aircraft. This multimillion-dollar contract covers six aircraft that are expected to be delivered between 2013 and 2017. JEJU AIR will be the first LCC in North Asia to fly Boeing 737 NG aircraft with Honeywell’s full avionics suite.
“South Korea is an important growth market, and extending into the LCC space through our partnership with JEJU AIR presents many opportunities,” said Pak Chin, Honeywell Aerospace vice president of airlines, Asia Pacific. “Honeywell’s full avionics suite will maximize aircraft performance, decrease operating and maintenance costs, and increase pilot and crew efficiency, providing JEJU AIR with a safe and smart way to lower total cost of ownership.”
The Honeywell avionics solutions selected by JEJU AIR will provide critical real-time information to the pilots to help keep aircraft on course, clear of terrain and optimize navigation and routing for better fuel efficiency. This includes:
• Honeywell’s Quantum Line communications/navigation sensors
• Next-generation Airborne Collision Avoidance System (ACAS II)
• Flight Data Acquisition and Management System (FDAMS)
• IntuVue 3-D Weather Radar
Honeywell’s IntuVue 3-D, an advanced system that provides pilots with a more complete picture of weather conditions, has demonstrated a 50 percent reduction in turbulence-related incidents, enhancing safety and keeping passengers comfortable. IntuVue increases system reliability, can save JEJU AIR up to 30 percent in maintenance costs and is 25 percent lighter compared with competing radars.
Honeywell’s patented next-generation ACAS II provides a display of surrounding aircraft and alerts the flight crew if another aircraft comes too close for safety. Solid state data and voice recorders record flight data parameters and cockpit voice conversation for analysis.
