Honeywell is to provide its full suite of safety avionics, including its IntuVue 3-D weather radar, for Tiger Airways’ new A320s.
IntuVue 3-D weather radar is an advanced system that, according to Honeywell, provides pilots with “a more complete picture of weather conditions than current two-dimensional (2-D) systems”. The OEM says that by being a lighter and more reliable system, IntuVue will also help Tiger to reduce costs and increase operational efficiency.
Tony Davis, president and group CEO of Tiger Airways Holdings, commented, “By partnering with Honeywell to provide a full suite of the latest technology avionics for our aircraft, we realise both operational and cost efficiencies. We are looking forward to serving our ever increasing numbers of passengers with these new aircraft fitted with not only the latest advanced weather radar systems from Honeywell, but also other enhancements such as leather seats. These enhancements will allow us to reduce our already low, low fares even further, and attract even more passengers.”
The agreement covers up to 50 new aircraft, deliveries of which are expected to begin in late 2010 and continue until 2015.
