Honeywell’s cockpit technologies were selected by Southwest Airlines for its future fleet of Boeing 737 MAX and existing fleet of Boeing 737NG aircraft.
As the world’s largest operator of Boeing 737s, Southwest Airlines selected Honeywell’s advanced cockpit technologies to ensure Southwest planes continue flying the safest and most efficient routes well into the future. 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.

Craig Drew, Vice President, Flight Operations, Southwest Airlines said, “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.”
