Honeywell avionics technology to provide JEJU AIR with operational efficiencies


JEJU AIR, the fastest-growing low-cost carrier (LCC) in South Korea, has selected Honeywell 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 that are expected 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. Honeywell’s IntuVue 3-D, an advanced system that provides pilots with a more complete picture of weather conditions, has 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 similar radars.
