Allegiant Air awards maintenance contracts to Honeywell for power/avionics systems

Allegiant Air has selected Honeywell (NYSE: HON) to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul services for its auxiliary power units and select avionics components across its fleet of new Airbus A319 and A320 aircraft, the company said.

The agreement also includes the replacement of non-Honeywell auxiliary power units (APUs) with Honeywell´s 131-9A version, ensuring commonality across the Allegiant fleet. By choosing Honeywell´s trusted aircraft technology and maintenance services, Allegiant will fly some of the most reliable and up-to-date aircraft anywhere.

Honeywell APUs are primarily used to power an airplane during ground operations, providing electricity, air conditioning, main engine starting and more. They can also provide backup electrical power during flights.
