Honeywell signed a contract with Turkish airline SunExpress to supply the company’s latest cockpit technologies for its first delivery of newly purchased Boeing 737-800 airplanes.
Honeywell will provide SunExpress with cockpit avionics, including the IntuVue 3-D Weather Radar and the SmartTraffic Traffic Collision Avoidance System. With these technologies Honeywell says SunExpress will be able to increase operational efficiency and maintain compliance with current and future industry safety regulations.
“With this agreement SunExpress will equip new Boeing 737s with some of the industry’s most advanced and capable avionics technologies available,” said Aileen McDowall, vice president, Airlines, EMEAI, Honeywell Aerospace. “SunExpress is the latest successful low-cost airline to invest in Honeywell’s avionics technologies to drive down costs while maximizing passenger safety and comfort.”
Honeywell says it has seen high demand for its cockpit avionics products in 2015. Other low-cost operators, including IndiGo and Southwest Airlines, have recently chosen Honeywell to provide safety and efficiency technologies for their new airplane fleets.
