HONEYWELL AUXILIARY POWER UNITS NOW STANDARD ON ALL AIRBUS A320s

Airbus has designated the Honeywell (NYSE: HON) 131-9A auxiliary power unit as standard equipment for its A320 family of aircraft — it is no longer just a selectable option for airlines. Honeywell’s auxiliary power unit is now recognized as the gold standard for the A320 family that provides significant fuel savings and demonstrated reliability.

“Reducing operating costs while offering customers the best air travel experience possible continues to be key for airlines,” said Brian Sill, president, Engines and Power Systems, Honeywell Aerospace. “Together, Honeywell and Airbus are offering A320 series customers an APU with best-in-class operational efficiency enabling more efficient, safe and comfortable travel experience for airline passengers.”

Honeywell recently shipped its 5,000th 131-9A auxiliary power unit (APU). This puts the number of production APUs from the 131-9 family at more than 11,000 units, with more than 100 million total flight hours. The 131-9 series auxiliary power unit has been selected by airlines for the majority of narrow-body aircraft. Its proven reliability helps reduce delays and flight cancellations, allowing airlines to stay on schedule so that their customers can reach their destinations on time.
