Saudi Arabian Airlines Selects Hamilton Sundstrand APS 3200 APU

Company's APUs Installed In A320s For Over 70 Airlines

Saudi Arabian Airlines has selected Hamilton Sundstrand to install its APS 3200 Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) on the airline's new fleet of 50 Airbus A320 series aircraft.

"We are very pleased to begin a new partnership with Saudi Arabian Airlines," said Dave Gitlin, Hamilton Sundstrand Power Systems vice president and general manager. "Saudi Arabian Airlines is a very important customer in the Middle Eastern region. We are tremendously grateful to have the opportunity to support this airline's growth with the APS 3200, which has proven its extensive A320 operational experience, low life-cycle costs, emissions and fuel consumption. In this partnership, Saudi Arabian Airlines will also have the opportunity to expand its MRO capability to repair and test the APS 3200 at the airline's own facilities."

According to Ali Milaat, vice president of Saudi Arabian Airlines Technical Services Division, "We are pleased to further expand our relationship with Hamilton Sundstrand by selecting the APS 3200, with its 15 million hours of service experience, as our APU of choice for our fleet as it grows to include 50 A320 aircraft. We judged the APS 3200 to be the best choice for our operation and for its fit into our long-term strategic plan."

The APS 3200 APU is designed and produced at the Hamilton Sundstrand Power Systems facility in San Diego.

Saudi Arabian Airlines, established in 1945 as the national carrier of Saudi Arabia, is based in Jeddah. In 2007, Saudi Arabian Airlines operated more than 127,600 revenue flights to 90 destinations domestically and internationally, transporting approximately 17 million passengers. Saudi Arabian Airlines' fleet consists of 91 widebody, single aisle and freighter aircraft.

Hamilton Sundstrand has delivered more than 1,500 APS 3200 APUs to more than 70 airlines for their fleets of Airbus A320 aircraft. Other Hamilton Sundstrand systems on A320 aircraft include the Electric Power Generating System and the Ram Air Turbine. Saudi Arabian Airlines also operates other aircraft that use Hamilton Sundstrand APUs.
