Honeywell and Satair have signed a multi-year commercial agreement covering mechanical and air thermal components.
Satair becomes the exclusive worldwide distributor for the components on Airbus A320, A330, A340 and A380 aircraft. The distribution agreement also covers the A350 platform on a non-exclusive basis.
The deal expands an existing business relationship between the companies but represents the first joint advancement into the global commercial aviation aftermarket.
“With this new programme, we enhance our commitment toward continuous customer satisfaction through fulfilment of on-time delivery for Airbus operators and maintenance providers worldwide,” said Satair’s chief executive officer Bart Reijnen.
Satair’s head of business development, global distribution Matt Jessee said that following the agreement, the company was “scaling its business to meet increasing global demands”.
Honeywell’s range of electronic and electro-pneumatic systems for air and thermal management monitor and control cabin temperature and air flow 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.
“Honeywell’s appointment of Satair is an expansion of our existing strong relationship,” said Honeywell Aerospace’s vice president, EMEAI Anthony Florian. “We already have two other agreements with Satair – a distributor agreement for the ADSB-Out Upgrade Pilot Program, and a nonexclusive worldwide distributor agreement for Honeywell’s JetWave satellite communications products. This partnership will serve to further strengthen our relationship.”
