LAN selects Messier-Bugatti-Dowty wheels and electric brakes for its future Boeing 787 Fleet

Messier-Bugatti-Dowty (Safran group) will provide the wheels and electric brakes for 32 Boeing 787-8 and 787-9 Dreamliners to be operated by LAN, the South American carrier that recently merged with TAM Linhas Aéreas.

Messier-Bugatti-Dowty has established a strategic partnership with LAN on wheels and carbon brakes for its Airbus and Boeing jets for a number of years.

Alain Sauret, Chairman and CEO of Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, said, "Messier-Bugatti-Dowty already provides wheels and carbon brakes for LAN’s A320, 767 and 777 fleets, and we are very proud to see this continued trust in our products. Today, we are delighted to be pioneering the use of electric brakes on commercial jets in North and South America through a key customer such as LAN."

Electric brakes by Messier-Bugatti-Dowty are designed to be weight efficient, while still retaining excellent thermal capacity. They also offer higher dispatch reliability, simplified maintenance and a longer service life. Messier-Bugatti-Dowty’s electric brakes are lighter than competing products, and are designed to offer more landings per overhaul.

Messier-Bugatti-Dowty also provides the nose and main landing gear for all Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
