Nov 15 Honeywell International Inc and
Rockwell Collins Inc are expected to win major contracts
to supply systems to Boeing Co for its updated 737 Max
jetliner, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing two people
familiar with the decisions.
If successful in securing a contract, Honeywell will supply
the jet's auxiliary power unit and the 737 Max's environmental
and engine-bleed systems, while Rockwell Collins will supply the
jet's avionics, the Journal said.
737 Max, an updated version of the single-aisle 737 jet, is
expected to be delivered in late 2017 to Southwest Airlines Co
, the Journal said.
"No announcement has been made on who will supply these
items" on the 737 Max, Boeing spokeswoman Lauren Penning said in
an email to the Journal. (ht tp://link.reuters.com/jyn93t)
The jet will employ a new model of engine, supplied by CFM
International, a joint venture between General Electric Co
and Safran SA, the Journal reported.
Boeing had no immediate comment on the Journal report when
contacted by Reuters. Honeywell International and Rockwell
Collins could not immediately be reached for comment by Reuters
outside regular U.S. business hours.
