With this new program, we enhance our commitment toward continuous customer satisfaction through the fulfillment of on-time delivery for Airbus operators and maintenance providers worldwide. “

Honeywell’s range of electronic and electro-pneumatic systems for air and thermal management are lightweight systems monitor and control cabin temperature and airflow in the cockpit, passenger, and cargo areas and provide cooling for avionics. They also manage the aircraft’s engine bleed air systems and pneumatic de-icing systems.

Anthony Florian, Vice President, EMEAI, Honeywell Aerospace stated: “Honeywell’s appointment of Satair is an expansion of our existing strong relationship. We already have two other agreements with Satair – a distributor agreement for the ADSB-Out Upgrade Pilot Program, and a non-exclusive worldwide distributor agreement for Honeywell’s JetWave satellite communications products.

Liebherr-Aerospace’s new integrated air management system has entered into service with ASL Airlines Ireland (on its new freighter aircraft ATR 72-600).

The newly enhanced system improves on-board comfort for passengers and crew while substantially reducing operational costs.

“In today’s competitive aviation landscape, it is imperative to constantly evaluate best-in-class partners, and Liebherr was able to deliver not only cost-effectiveness, but, most importantly, performance enhancements,” said David Brigante, ATR Senior Vice President Programmes and Customer Services. “Liebherr’s footprint in our ATR family has now been expanded from pressurisation and anti-ice components to bleed and air management systems as well as ground cooling systems,” he continued.

Under the ATR Global Maintenance Agreement (GMA) Liebherr-Aerospace will also be the exclusive product support provider for the new air management system worldwide. The 10-year agreement will be carried out by Liebherr-Aerospace’s service stations in Toulouse (France), Singapore and Saline, Michigan (US). Developments are well under way to provide ATR with cutting edge technology that includes predictive maintenance services.
