Air Arabia has selected Honeywell to extend maintenance services and supply APUs for the airline’s fleet of Airbus A320ceo aircraft. 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.
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 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.Email Post to a Friend
