Honeywell to provide mechanical and avionics protection plans to MNG Jet


Honeywell has secured a contract to supply its mechanical protection plan (MPP) and avionics protection plan (HAPP) for Turkish fleet management company MNG Jet's Bombardier Global 5000 and Challenger 605 aircraft fleet.

The plans are designed to help owners and operators with improved predictability over repair and maintenance for environmental, cabin control systems and mechanical components.

They also offer protection to the on-board Honeywell equipment, including Mark V Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System and 36 series Auxiliary Power Unit, in order to improve aircraft performance with minimal downtime during repairs.

“The fixed-price Mechanical Protection and Honeywell Avionics Protection Plans are designed to give operators peace of mind.”

Under the latest deal, MNG will be able to supply fast service and support from Honeywell-trained product experts, as well as gain access to more than 600 authorised sales and service centres worldwide.

HAPP will also allow MNG to have access to Honeywell’s exchange and rental programme to reduce aircraft downtime.

Honeywell Aerospace aftermarket sales director Raghed Talih said: “We understand that our business aviation customers have invested heavily in their environmental and cabin pressure control systems, which can be costly to maintain and repair when the unexpected happens.

“The fixed-price Mechanical Protection and Honeywell Avionics Protection Plans are designed to give operators peace of mind with predictable maintenance costs and the ability to avoid or minimise aircraft downtime and expensive repair bills.”

In a separate development, Honeywell announced that it had been selected by Embraer to upgrade its Lineage 1000E executive jets with the company's JetWave satellite communications hardware.

It will see thetransmission of global, high-speed Wi-Fi via Inmarsat's Jet ConneX service to the Embraer aircraft.
