Honeywell Avionics upgrades repair capabilities in China


Honeywell Avionics’ Shanghai-based division has enhanced its product repair capabilities in order to provide improved services to customers using various Honeywell products in China and the Asia-Pacific region.

With the upgrade, the company will be able to provide faster turnaround times on repairs, improved customer communication, and effective technical support for its products.

Customers using Honeywell’s traffic alert and collision avoidance system and IntuVue 3D weather radar will also benefit from the latest upgrade.

“There are big opportunities in the region’s maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) market."

In addition, Chinese customers will no longer have to transfer aircraft to Honeywell sites in the US or Singapore for repairs.

With the newly improved services, operators can also reduce maintenance time and cost.

Turnaround times on repairs will be reduced by an average of more than 60% and Honeywell’s China-based service centre will be able to provide integrated regional services.

The centre currently offers comprehensive services to customers, allowing them to reduce the safety stocks of backup facilities.

Honeywell’s latest product repair upgrade also improves its aftermarket services in China.

Honeywell Aerospace Asia Pacific Airlines vice-president Brian Davis said: “There are big opportunities in the region’s maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) market.

“According to ICF International’s MRO Forecast and Market Trend, the Asia Pacific MRO market is expected to nearly double to approximately $32.2bn by 2025, at 6% per annum.

“In the Asia-Pacific region, Honeywell has seven aftermarket service sites.”

Honeywell’s traffic alert and collision avoidance system (TCAS) TPA100D and RDR4000 IntuVue 3D weather radar are currently installed on several Boeing and Airbus fleets operating across the Asia Pacific region.
