Safran Landing Systems A350 and A320neo equipment both provide a weight advantage compared to competing products, contributing to ITA Airways’ objective and commitment to minimize its environmental footprint and by saving more than 300 tons of CO2 emissions per year across its fleet. The A350 equipment features a unique design that provides faster cooling for shorter TurnAround Times (TAT) and increased fleet availability. Safran Landing Systems wheels and brakes are equipped on over 11,000 aircraft to date.
"We share a long-standing collaboration of trust with Safran Landing Systems," Alessio Leone, Head of Maintenance Operations at ITA Airways says. "Their wheels and carbon brakes are the ideal solution, not only in regard to our performance and maintenance costs requirements but also because they offer an important weight reduction and we are confident to confirm endurance benefits that are in line with our sustainable strategy and 'Born To Be Sustainable' claim. We are committed to our customers to become the Europe's greenest air carrier by 2026 and Safran helps us to do that."
