 Honeywell Aerospace Expands Product Offering For Boeing's New 737 MAX Fleet

New Electronic Bleed Air System to boost reliability, efficiency and comfort

PR Newswire

PHOENIX, Nov. 15, 2012

PHOENIX, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has been selected
to provide several vital aircraft subsystems for the new 737 MAX, Boeing's new
family of airplanes.


The 737 MAX will come equipped with the latest Honeywell Electronic Bleed Air
System (EBAS), in addition to other existing Honeywell 737 systems that will
lower the cost of ownership for operators, while increasing reliability,
efficiency and comfort.

The Honeywell EBAS is designed to take airflow from the airplane engines to
provide cabin pressurization and environmental cabin controls, and bring warm
air to the wings to mitigate potential icing. The Honeywell EBAS includes an
updated Pack Flow and Temperature Controller (PFTC) which enables increased
cabin climate efficiency allowing for reduced fuel consumption.

EBAS: Lowering Operational Costs

The 737 MAX is a new-engine variant of the Boeing 737 that extends the legacy
of this highly successful airplane family. It builds on previous airplane
strengths and offers advances in fuel-efficiency and environmental
performance. With Honeywell's new EBAS, operators will be able to improve the
performance of environmental control systems, cabin pressurization and ice
protection while reducing maintenance costs and fuel burn — ultimately
reducing the cost of ownership for each airplane.

The new system allows operators to monitor airplane diagnostics
electronically, making troubleshooting easier and maintenance less
time-intensive. It also gives them more information at their fingertips.
Operators can easily isolate system issues and quickly implement a solution.

For operators, the new EBAS will enable significant cost savings in
maintenance and reduced fuel burn over the lifetime of the airplane. It boasts
higher reliability than its predecessors, thereby building on the 737's legacy
of industry-leading airplane reliability.

First delivery of the 737 MAX is planned for 2017.
