Contract Between Honeywell and Cathay Pacific About Aircraft Parts


Honeywell Aerospace

Honeywell, a company that invents and manufactures technologies addressing some of the world’s largest challenges regarding energy, safety, security, global urbanization and productivity, was recently contracted by Cathay Pacific, a large airline company based out of Hong Kong, to deploy Honeywell’s part ‘GoDirect Connected Aircraft maintenance’. Honeywell’s aircraft part program combines the airplane’s connectivity, data analytics and product knowledge to predict when mechanical parts need to be replaced or fixed. This Honeywell part can diminish systems that do not operate by up to 35 percent, causing the cost of disruptive and annoying maintenance. This Honeywell part also reduces the risk of flight cancellation and makes customers lives easier by reducing the risk of delays. Honeywell’s airplane part will help Cathay Pacific support their commitment to customers by reducing the risk of disruptions solely caused by aircraft operating systems. Honeywell will be saving Cathay Pacific hundreds of thousands of dollars in operational and reactive maintenance that would have been unavoidable. If this trail with Honeywell parts goes well Cathay Pacific will more than likely extend the program to its fleet of Boeing B777’s.

Honeywell claims that this aircraft part will allow airlines to be able to put the passenger experience first, while still allowing the aircraft to become a more all-inclusive and agile platform that makes flying safer, cost effective and more efficient for both customers and Cathay Pacific. Overall this system allows for airplane maintenance to be scheduled ahead of time rather than being scheduled unexpectedly. Honeywell eventually plans to expand this technology to other parts of the aircraft including wheels, brakes and environmental control systems. This makes Cathay pacific a leader in the shift to predictive flying. This Honeywell aircraft part is aiding the aviation industry in turning digital, a transformation sparked using the big data analytics and the internet. This technology means less cancelled and delayed flights which means more satisfied and delighted customers.
