Central European budget carrier Wizz Air has signed on as European Airbus A320 launch customer for Honeywell's three-dimensional IntuVue weather radar. This allows pilots to visually dissect storms as much as 590km (320nm) ahead, helping to avoid convective-related turbulence. Wizz Air is also buying Honeywell 131-9A auxiliary power units and other avionics and safety tools for 70 new Airbus A320s to be delivered up to 2014. An APU service deal would apply to 25 optional A320s that Wizz Air may select for delivery between 2014 and 2016.
