JEJU Air in South Korea adopts Honeywell avionics, including communications and navigation sensors, collision avoidance, and 3D weather radar

SINGAPORE, 23 Feb. 2012. Officials at JEJU Air, a fast-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, 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, says a representative. The suite includes Honeywell's Quantum Line communications/navigation sensors, next-generation Airborne Collision Avoidance System (ACAS II), Flight Data Acquisition and Management System (FDAMS), and IntuVue 3-D Weather Radar.

"South Korea is an important growth market, and extending into the LCC space through our partnership with JEJU AIR presents many opportunities," admits 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 provided to JEJU AIR will deliver real-time information to pilots, helping to keep aircraft on course andto  clear of terrain and optimize navigation and routing for better fuel efficiency.

Honeywell's IntuVue 3-D provides pilots with a more complete picture of weather conditions and 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, according to a Honeywell spokesperson.

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.
