Posted by John McHalePHOENIX, 18 June 2010. Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced that it will provide its full suite of safety avionics, including its advanced IntuVue 3-D weather radar, for Tiger Airways new A320 aircraft. Tiger Airways will be Asia's first low-cost carrier to fly A320 aircraft with IntuVue. Honeywell's full avionics suite also includes an air data inertial reference unit (ADIRU), flight management system (FMS), next generation aircraft collision and avoidance system (ACAS), solid state flight data recorder (FDR) and cockpit voice recorder (CVR), enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS), and HF radio and airline operational communication (AOC) software.IntuVue 3-D weather radar provides pilots a more complete picture of weather conditions than current two-dimensional (2-D) systems. As a lighter and more reliable system, IntuVue will also help Tiger Airways to reduce costs and increase operational efficiency, Honeywell officials say."Honeywell's IntuVue 3-D weather radar has demonstrated a 50 percent reduction in turbulence-related incidents, enhancing safety and keeping passengers comfortable," says Mike Madsen, vice president of Airlines, Honeywell Aerospace. "IntuVue can save costs for Tiger Airways because of its 50 percent increase in system reliability, 30 percent decrease in maintenance costs and 25 percent weight reduction as compared to competing radars.""By partnering with Honeywell to provide a full suite of the latest technology avionics for our aircraft, we realize both operational and cost efficiencies,"” says Tony Davis, president and group chief executive officer of Tiger Airways Holdings. "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 as many as 50 new aircraft that are expected to start deliveries from late 2010 until 2015.Established in September 2004, Tiger Airways now operates a fleet of 19 Airbus A320-family aircraft and is committed to increasing its fleet size to 68 by December 2015.
