Comair opts for Honeywell tech in new aircraft

Mar 09 2018 18:54

Cape Town – Honeywell International announced on Friday that Comair has selected its suite of advanced cockpit technologies for its future fleet of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.
 
“Our new fleet additions will enable us to be on the cutting edge of aerospace technology and in a leadership position among the airlines in region,” said Erik Venter, CEO of Comair.

“Supplementing that with some of the best navigation and weather equipment from Honeywell International means that we can keep our commitment to safety and ensure passengers reach their destinations quickly and comfortably.”

Outfitting the first 737 MAX fleet in Africa, Comair is using the industry’s leading navigation and weather systems, including Honeywell’s Integrated Multi-Mode Receiver and the IntuVue RDR-4000 3D Weather Radar system.

In January 2019 Comair will take delivery of the first of eight Boeing B737-800 MAX 8s, which will complete its fleet replacement strategy.

“Maintaining reliable, safe service is of maximum importance to airlines, especially as they look for new and more impactful ways to upgrade their fleets,” said Rudolph Louw, aerospace leader – Africa, of Honeywell International.
