Honeywell (NYSE: HON) Aerospace has signed an avionics dealership and service center agreement with Hawker Pacific to enhance its approved business and general aviation channel partner network in the Middle East. The agreement makes it easier for business and general aviation operators to receive sales, installation and aftermarket support for Honeywell’s wide range of avionics products and services including navigation for the cockpit and satellite communication technologies for both the cockpit and cabin.
Under the agreement Hawker Pacific will provide Retrofits Modifications and Upgrades (RMUs) plus servicing for Honeywell’s avionics technologies designed to increase safety, improve cockpit-to-ground communications, maximize passenger experience and reduce pilot workload.
Hawker Pacific is a valuable addition to our dealer network in the Middle East, said Andy Gill, senior director, aftermarket EMEAI, Honeywell Aerospace. “Our two companies already have a long-standing and successful full-service agreement in Australia. With this latest announcement operators in the Middle East can now benefit from faster, local access to Hawker Pacific’s product expertise and aftermarket care for a wide range of our business and general aviation products and services.”
With a global uptick in demand for both cabin and cockpit connectivity across business and general aviation, the agreement with Hawker Pacific signals Honeywell’s intent to provide its customers around the world with even greater access to, and support for, the upgrades they need to take advantage of faster and more efficient satellite communications.
“The extension of our relationship with Honeywell into the Middle East was a natural one, which will bring significant benefits for operators across the region, said Ian D’Arcy, vice president operations Middle East region, Hawker Pacific.
“Honeywell is a world leader in the manufacture of satcom, navigation and safety avionics, and with our extensive knowledge of its products combined with three decades of experience in the Middle East the agreement will make it even easier for operators to upgrade their fleets and reduce servicing time and cost.”
