Air Arabia extends relationship with Honeywell in APU deal

Posted 12 March 2019 · Add Comment

Honeywell announced an agreement with Air Arabia at the Saudi Airshow today, to extend maintenance services and supply auxiliary power units (APUs) for the airline’s fleet of Airbus A320ceo aircraft.

 

Alongside the APU upgrade to its A320ceo fleet, Air Arabia also upgraded two of its A320s with Honeywell’s 131-9A APU, ensuring greater reliability and commonality with the rest of its fleet.
The selection will see the two companies extend their decade long working relationship, and includes an agreement for Honeywell to continue to supply repair services to the airline.
“Three out of four A320 aircraft are fitted with our APUs, which is testament to the performance and reliability our products provide,” said David Shilliday, Honeywell’s vice president for airlines, EMEAI, Honeywell Aerospace.
The Honeywell 131-9A APU supplies compressed air to start the main engine, as well as air conditioning and electrical power on the ground and in flight. It is known for its reliability and lower maintenance costs over the course of the entire life cycle, resulting in significant fuel savings. The APUs are also fitted with the Predictive Trend Monitoring and Diagnostics Program, which reduces unscheduled removals due to unforeseen faults.
