Honeywell Supports China Eastern Airlines In Increasing The Safety And Efficiency Of Its Fleet

SHANGHAI, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell Aerospace (NYSE: HON) has extended its strategic partnership with China Eastern Airlines, signing several agreements to increase the safety, efficiency and performance of its growing fleet of aircraft. Through these agreements, Honeywell will provide a range of avionics products for 58 new Boeing 737NG aircraft, scheduled to be delivered over the next five years. Honeywell will also provide wheels and brakes for 15 new Airbus A330 aircraft. This would bring the total number of Airbus A330 aircraft in China Eastern Airlines' fleet equipped with Honeywell wheels and brakes to 51 by 2015.


The Honeywell avionics products that will be installed on China Eastern's new Boeing 737NG aircraft include:
  • IntuVue 3-D Weather Radar, the industry's most advanced weather radar, provides flight crews with intuitive displays of weather from 0 to 60,000 feet and up to 320 nautical miles away. This technology has been proven to save fuel by avoiding unnecessary diversions. In addition, a new upgrade is available, which predicts lightning and hail in a storm cell and allows the pilot to reroute, increasing passenger safety and preventing potential costly damage to the aircraft.
  • Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS), which provides SmartTraffic features, allowing airlines to accurately and safely navigate congested areas through a more intuitive and informative display of traffic. Using unique features to keep aircraft separated both over land and oceanic routes, it directly contributes to fuel savings.
  • Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS) uses the industry's most accurate worldwide terrain database to predict potential conflicts between the aircraft's flight path and terrain or obstacles. New software upgrades available for download address runway excursions and incursions, the aviation industry's most common cause of accidents at or near the airport.

With these avionics installations, China Eastern Airlines will have an advanced 737NG platform that enables flight crews to maximize safety and comfort for their passengers while reducing costs, fuel burn and carbon emissions during flight.
