As a global Honeywell Channel Partner, Dublin Aerospace will be an authorised extension of Honeywell, providing customers with a Honeywell-approved overhaul, repair, modification, and testing service for the 131-9A and 131-9B APU.

Commenting on the partnership, William Flaherty, CEO at Dublin Aerospace said: “We are delighted to be an official Channel Partner of Honeywell. Not only does this partnership further highlight our expertise and capabilities in the aerospace MRO space, but allows us to provide additional benefits to our customers. Our customers will further benefit from reduced maintenance costs, reliable supply chain, access to guaranteed OEM material, and quick turnaround times.
At Dublin Aerospace, APU Maintenance has been performed on a variety of Honeywell APUs since our inception, and so this agreement is an important milestone for us. As we operate on a global stage, I have every confidence that this partnership will strengthen our services worldwide.
I speak on behalf of the entire team at Dublin Aerospace when I say we truly look forward to a fruitful partnership with the team at Honeywell.”
