Honeywell Aerospace’s full suite of cockpit technologies has been selected by Southwest Airlines for its future fleet of Boeing 737 MAX and existing fleet of Boeing 737NG aircraft.

Honeywell will provide Southwest Airlines with its Integrated Multi-Mode Receiver (IMMR), IntuVue RDR-4000 3-D Weather Radar, Aspire satellite communications systems, and other safety, communication and navigation technologies.

 Southwest will be the first airline to integrate Honeywell’s IMMR into its fleet, providing the airline with enhanced landing and routing performance.

“We are proud to extend our 30-year relationship with Southwest Airlines by supporting its next-generation 737 MAX aircraft and current fleet of 737s,” said John Bolton, president, Air Transport and Regional, Honeywell Aerospace. “This full-suite selection of Honeywell’s cockpit technologies will not only give Southwest the industry’s most advanced fleet of 737s, it will ensure Southwest flies with exceptional levels of reliability and efficiency, helping to keep passengers and planes safe and on time.”

The Honeywell technology upgrades and installation on new aircraft will also outfit Southwest Airlines with the necessary equipment to meet current and upcoming NextGen regulations mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), such as the use of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B). This system provides an accurate and more complete assessment of an airplane’s location to air traffic control and other airplanes, enhancing pilots’ situational awareness.

“The fleet decisions we make today are ensuring our ability to offer the safest, most customer-friendly experience to the flying public well into the future,” said Craig Drew, vice president, Flight Operations, Southwest Airlines. “As we add more international destinations to our flight schedule, our fleet will take to the skies with the most advanced communication, navigation, weather and cockpit technologies available. Our relationship with Honeywell confirms our commitment to the performance, productivity and reliability for which Southwest is known.”
