Singapore Airlines Selects Messier-Bugatti-Dowty's A350 XWB Carbon Brakes

Vélizy - Messier-Bugatti-Dowty (Safran group) has been selected by Singapore Airlines for the supply of the wheels and carbon brakes for its Airbus A350 XWB fleet. This selection confirms Messier-Bugatti-Dowty's leading position in Asia for the A350 XWB market segment.

Messier-Bugatti-Dowty is offering a new generation carbon brake for the A350 XWB. Its optimized design offers quicker cooling and better energy absorption on braking, which translates into faster turnaround times and higher fleet availability for operators. Other benefits include a lower parts count to increase reliability and reduce weight. It uses the Sepcarb(r)III OR (oxidation resistant) carbon composite material, already chosen for nearly half of the global fleet of commercial jets and simply the best carbon available on the market.

This brake is "eco-designed", using the latest non-polluting manufacturing and surface treatment technologies, both at Messier-Bugatti-Dowty and the company's subcontractors.

This new success with one of the world's leading airlines, already a major customer of Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, confirms their recognition of our quality and confidence in our products."

Messier-Bugatti-Dowty is the world's No1 supplier of carbon brakes. On the Airbus A350-800 and -900 it will also supply all main landing gear, as well as steering, landing gear extension/retraction and braking systems.
