Malaysia Airlines (MAB) has signed an avionics hardware and support agreement for its fleet of 737-8 aircraft with Collins Aerospace at the 2024 Singapore Air Show.

Critical communications, navigation, surveillance systems and air data sensors will be provided and serviced by Collins’ DispatchSM solution – a service plan covering maintenance, assets and logistical support.

Malaysia Airlines will have access to original equipment manufacturer-certified spares, repairs and service, while ensuring parts availability and expedited turnaround times at predictable costs.

“MAB’s 737-8 fleet will receive reliable navigation and guidance solutions that enable greater efficiency and precision accuracy for a wide range of airborne applications,” said Craig Bries, vice president and general manager of Avionics Sales, Marketing and Aftermarket Services at Collins Aerospace.

“Through Collins’ Dispatch maintenance program, MAB will not only have access to a global network of spares pools, service centres and technical assistance, but will be equipped with the confidence their avionics systems are operating predictably, safely and with more on-time departures and arrivals.”

“As the demand for travel continues to soar, our narrowbody fleet remains pivotal in supporting connectivity to key markets. By leveraging on the expertise and capabilities of our partners, we ensure that the fleet receives the necessary maintenance support, ensuring efficiency and reliability of our aircraft,” said Ahmad Luqman Mohd Azmi, CEO of airlines from Malaysia Aviation Group.
