Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has signed a three-year contract with Deer Jet, the largest business aviation operator in Asia Pacific, to enroll 12 aircraft from its Gulfstream fleet into the Honeywell Avionics Protection Plan and another nine aircraft into the Honeywell Mechanical Protection Plan, the company said.
Existing protection plans on Deer Jet aircraft have already saved the company nearly USD 1 million, the company added.
The Honeywell Avionics Protection Plan (HAPP) is a maintenance service program and protection plan that offers fast and cost-efficient avionics support to business and general aviation operators.
Honeywell´s program plays a significant role in operators avoiding unexpected maintenance costs and keeping fleets optimized and flight-ready. As one of the largest repair and replacement programs in business and general aviation, HAPP currently covers aircraft for more than 3,000 operators worldwide. Similar to warranty programs, HAPP provides comprehensive coverage for Honeywell aircraft systems. The coverage helps operators better forecast maintenance and repair costs and respond quickly when servicing is required.
Deer Jet, which is the largest user of HAPP products in mainland China, will become an authorized dealer to sell HAPP to other business jet operators across Asia Pacific. Those operators can choose to enroll in HAPP regardless of an aircraft´s age, with pricing based on flight hours, aircraft type and equipment on board. Deer Jet will also promote Honeywell´s MPP to business jet operators, which is the most widely recognized cabin protection in the industry, protecting environmental and cabin pressure control systems.
In addition, Deer Jet is a Honeywell-authorized avionics dealer and auxiliary power unit mechanical service center — allowing the company to maintain, install and upgrade Honeywell avionics for business aviation operators in Asia Pacific.
