Honeywell Aftermarket Support Selected By Jet2.Com For Auxiliary Power Units In 34 Of Its Boeing 737 Aircraft

Honeywell Aftermarket Support Selected By Jet2.Com For Auxiliary Power Units In 34 Of Its Boeing 737 Aircraft

  • Honeywell’s 131-9B APU to provide high-performance, low maintenance and fuel savings for 34 of Jet2.com’s Boeing 737-800NG aircraft

PARIS, June 21, 2023 – Jet2.com, the award-winning UK leisure airline that specializes in scheduled holiday flights to destinations across Europe, the Mediterranean and Canary Islands, has selected Honeywell (NASDAQ: HON) to provide aftermarket support for auxiliary power units on 34 of its Boeing 737-800NG aircraft.

Under the terms of the agreement, Jet2.com will also use Honeywell’s Predictive Trend Monitoring and Diagnostics (PTMD) application to reduce maintenance costs and enhance the process of troubleshooting Honeywell auxiliary power units (APUs). Maintenance of the APUs will be performed at Honeywell’s facility in Raunheim, Germany.

Jet2.com is the UK’s third largest airline, and flies from 11 UK airports to more than 65 sun, leisure city and ski destinations. Its sister company, Jet2holidays, is the UK’s largest tour operator, delivering ATOL-protected package holidays (with Jet2.com flights included) to millions of customers every year.

To support its continued growth, Jet2 plc, the leading leisure travel group that encompasses Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, has invested in ambitious fleet expansion and renewal plans, with Honeywell equipping up to 75 new Airbus A321 NEO aircraft with APUs. Jet2 plc has 98 firm Airbus A321/A320 NEO aircraft orders, which could eventually extend up to 146 aircraft.

Honeywell’s first APU took to the skies in 1950, and the company has built more than 100,000 since then.

An APU is a critical piece of aircraft equipment that provides electrical power and air conditioning while the plane is on the ground to ensure increased passenger comfort and supplies the air source when a pilot is ready to start the main engines. More than 36,000 APUs, including both fixed wing and rotary wing, are in service today across more than 150 regional, executive, commercial and military applications.
