Honeywell selects ExecuJet Nigeria in expansion of African flight-deck avionics service

Posted 22 November 2017 · Add Comment

Honeywell has selected ExecuJet Nigeria as an approved avionics dealer and installation and service facility for business aircraft owners in the Africa region.

As the African business and general aviation market continues to expand, this arrangement enhances an owner or operator’s ease to modernise, upgrade and overhaul aircraft cockpits locally. With the ability to support West and North Africa more easily, local owners can now save time and expenses without the need to fly to Europe or South Africa for overhauls, upgrades or repairs.

“As a premier aviation company, we work with partners to support us with solid industry expertise and market leading technology - that’s where Honeywell comes in,” said Graeme Duckworth, Executive Vice President MRO Services, Luxaviation Group. “In Africa, we can now offer the technology and services our customers need, so they can focus on the travel requirements of their clients and have access to our world-class expertise without leaving the continent.”

ExecuJet’s proximity to other regions provides business aircraft owners in West and North Africa use of its Lagos, Nigeria facility as a service point for their aircraft. These operators can take advantage of ExecuJet’s expertise in Honeywell’s full suite of avionics, which includes key solutions for business and general aviation like the Honeywell Avionics Protection Plan (HAPP), which is aimed at protecting operators against the burden of unexpected maintenance costs.

“As the market for business and general aviation grows in the African region, so should the support structures that customers rely on,” said Rudolph Louw, Aerospace Leader for Africa, Honeywell Aerospace. “Enhancing support in Africa and working with local businesses like ExecuJet Nigeria further demonstrates Honeywell’s commitment to the region, especially as the supplier of products and services that are key to increase efficiency, safety and reliability of the area’s aircraft.”
