Comair has selected Honeywell International's suite of advanced cockpit technologies for its future fleet of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.

“Our new fleet additions will enable us to be on the cutting edge of aerospace technology and in a leadership position among the airlines in region,” said Erik Venter, chief executive officer, Comair.

“Supplementing that with some of the best navigation and weather equipment from Honeywell International Inc. means that we can keep our commitment to safety and ensure passengers reach their destinations quickly and comfortably.”

Outfitting the first 737 MAX fleet in Africa, Comair is using the industry’s leading navigation and weather systems, including Honeywell’s Integrated Multi-Mode Receiver and the IntuVue RDR-4000 3D Weather Radar system. These advanced technologies work together to help pilots prepare for and respond to new or difficult runway approaches and hazardous weather conditions. In turn, Comair can increase passenger safety and comfort, while preparing for future flight safety regulations.

"Maintaining reliable, safe service is of maximum importance to airlines, especially as they look for new and more impactful ways to upgrade their fleets,” said Rudolph Louw, aerospace leader – Africa, Honeywell International . 

“Working with Honeywell International Inc. provides pilots with the intelligence they need to not only make incremental adjustments in their flight route to save time and fuel, but also avoid patches of turbulent weather. Ultimately this helps drive fuel and maintenance efficiencies, while promoting a positive passenger experience.”
