China's ICBC Leasing has chosen Rockwell Collins to supply communication, navigation and surveillance avionics for up to 42 new Airbus A320s, deliveries of which will begin later this year.
ICBC Leasing and Rockwell Collins signed the agreement on 14 February at the Singapore Airshow.
"This is the first time that ICBC Leasing is bringing a baseline package of our avionics to their customers, including our most advanced weather radar - MultiScan, and the GLU-925 multi-mode receiver [MMR]," said Colin Mahoney, vice-president, sales and marketing for commercial systems at Rockwell Collins.
"This technology plays an important role in increasing the safety and efficiency of air traffic operations in this regions' evolving airspace."
Rockwell Collins' service centres in China will be able to support the systems on ICBC Leasing's fleet.
