Honeywell signed a contract with Indian airline IndiGo to supply its on-order Airbus A320neo fleet with a suite of avionics technologies that enable pilots to better monitor the surrounding airspace and provide greater situational awareness, including the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS), SmartRunway/SmartLanding, SmartTraffic Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS), Flight Data and Cockpit Voice Recorders and Flight Management Systems.
“By providing IndiGo’s new fleet with the latest technology, we are ensuring that India’s fastest-growing domestic airline is increasing safety and efficiency,” said Arijit Ghosh, President, Honeywell Aerospace India. “With this agreement, IndiGo joins an ever-growing list of carriers around the world that are committed to equipping their aircraft with the latest technology to provide passengers with the best travel experience possible.”
IndiGo's A320neo fleet will be the first India airline to feature Honeywell's SmartRunway/SmartLanding system, which increases awareness during taxi, takeoff and landing phases by helping pilots ensure that the aircraft has a stabilized approach and is configured to land.
In addition to cockpit technologies, Honeywell will provide products and handle maintenance requirements for the Honeywell 131-9A Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) for IndiGo’s new A320neo fleet.
