Thales will equip an initial 17 Airbus single aisle aircraft with the Flight Management System (FMS), the navigation solution of choice for Airbus aircraft in China, alongside the Thales/ACSS T3CAS surveillance platform, the preferred solution for all Airbus aircraft in the world. The new fleet will also feature the Low Range Radio Altimeter (LRRA) and Emergency Location Transmitters (ELT). The airline has also placed an option for a further 28 aircraft to be equipped with these components.
"The confidence Juneyao has placed in us is extremely important to our strategy here in China. With Thales employing over 1,000 employees in the country, 95% of whom are Chinese citizens, China remains one of our most important growing markets. Competition for the growing client base here is fierce and each new contract is very important. Over the course of 2014 and 15, our avionics products have been selected by various local airlines and we will strive to continue to ascertain our leadership position on this market", said Daniel Malka, Vice President and General Manager Thales Avionics Services Worldwide.
