UTC Aerospace Systems Selected By Thai Airways International For Wheels And Carbon Brakes On 777-300ER Fleet

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UTC Aerospace Systems has been selected by Thai Airways International to supply the wheels and carbon brakes for its new fleet of 14 Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.  UTC Aerospace Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp.

"Our ability to partner with Thai for their six owned aircraft and their leasing company for the eight leased aircraft is a great example of our customer focused drive to provide proactive solutions to meet our customer's needs."

Based in Bangkok, Thailand's national flag carrier was founded in 1988 and flies to 71 destinations in 35 countries in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe and North America.
